If you are looking for a place to dine or just have a snack or a drink you have a lot of choices to pick from. It is centrally located but rather busy as this is just at the railway station (Oslo Sentral-stasjon). Nice outdoor...More

Loved the structure and building. Some little shops (food mostly). Just an enjoyable structure. Recommend starting walk here (or finishing) and walking up Karl Johans to the Palace. Lots if interesting things along way.

A good food hall with a variety of options for either a quick dinner or a sit down meal before a train. Would recommend the grilled cheese sandwiches from MELT. Yes it’s expensive but everything in Norway is!

It's a nice place to walk through, lots of places to get food. The prices are a bit high if you actually want to eat.

The central TI is here anyway, so do a walk through while you pick up materials, including the Oslo card which (unlike many other city cards) is truly worth it.. This is the old station redone for shops.
