Grünerløkka is the nicest area in Oslo. They have a lot of cozy and nice caffés with pleasant atmosphere. There is also a good amount of parks in the area.

There are tons of cool shops and restaurants. It is in a residential neighborhood, so it isn't THAT exciting.

We expected to spend a good couple of hours here wandering the streets and looking in shops. Unfortunately depending on which road you specifically walk down, you're likely to have vastly different experiences. We visited twice during our stay and both times were swift visits. We found a lot of the restaurants to be chains or poorly rated on TripAdvisor... More

My wife & I were trying to find the Grunerlokka Bakery & that's how we chanced upon this hidden city. This place is like a 2x2 km square, which is lined with Pubs, bars, restaurants, small eateries, art galleries & trinket shops. An evening here would be perfect, strolling & checking out the small eclectic shops & then gettin a... More

Grünerløkka is only a few minutes away from the city centre and is an area always pulsing with good vibes, good food, good drinks and loads of different types of people. Whether you visit Grünerløkka during the daytime or at nighttime you'll always have a different experience as there are so many different shops, restaurants and bars to go to.... More

Grunerløkka is Oslo´s hipster hotspot. It has lots of good bars, restaurants, shops and parks. At the bottom end you also find Mathallen (food market).

I spent a couple days in Oslo and happened across this neighborhood while just walking around. There are plenty of bars, restaurants, and shops for a visitor looking to explore. Also, the street art around this neighborhood is incredible. If you're in the area and have some time just to wander, check this place out.

This is a colourful and bohemian part of town. The industrial buildings testify to the working class history of the surrounds but today you come here for good restaurants, relaxed cafes, second hand shops and other shopping. You can easily take the tram up from the city. I will mention Trancher as one of the nice places to go out... More

Experience the real pulse of Oslo. Visit Grunnelokka anytime of the day and feel the buzz. The place is awash with cool, interesting cafes, bars, eateries, galleries, shops and people. Although Norway is expensive, the prices you pay here are for the most part everyday local prices. There are no tourist traps here they would not survive! Whenever I have... More
