The Michelin-starred restaurant may have opened back in 1982, but it’s still one of the buzziest spots in town. Dishes such as halibut with charred onions or veal with Jerusalem artichoke are deceptively simple but masterfully conceived.
Uncovering authentic local finds and having experiences that make you feel like you’ve really connected with a place are important elements in ensuring an extraordinary vacation.

With its sloping white-marble roof and delicate glass façade, Oslo’s landmark opera house—designed by world-renowned firm Snøhetta—is a grand architectural statement. The stone terraces run from the shore to the building and are integrated into the roof, a series of steep, angled planes for adventurous pedestrians and pre-theater crowds.
The glass-and-steel structure is dedicated to the life and works of Norwegian artist Edvard Munch, best known for The Scream. This notable work and Munch’s Madonna were stolen from the property in 2004 and recovered two years later; the prolific collection also includes more than 1,200 paintings and 18,000 prints.
In the edgy, boutique-lined Grünerløkka neighborhood, this footwear mecca is a top shopping destination—and not just for shoes. Brands include Copenhagen’s Beck Sönder Gaard, known for its printed scarves and distressed leather bags, and the city’s own Line of Oslo, maker of organic-linen basics.
