Trains to Oslo

Traveling to Oslo by train isn't just a scenic treat offering superb views of the Nordic countryside. It's also a comfortable, convenient way to reach Norway's capital, whether visitors are arriving from Bergen, Stockholm, or further afield.

Which is the main train station in Oslo?

Most trains to Oslo run into Oslo S (also known as Oslo Central Station). Norway's largest station, Oslo S has excellent links to the rest of the city. It can be found just east of Sentrum (the modern city center), but Metro connections ensure that visitors can easily transfer to districts like Sofienberg, Majorstuen, and Grefsen. The Old Town is also 5-10 minutes' walk away, so kicking off sightseeing tours will be easy.

Which train companies offer trains to Oslo?

Trains from the Swedish capital Stockholm to Oslo will generally be operated by SL, Sweden's national carrier. On the other hand, trains from Copenhagen and Malmo will usually be provided by Oresundstag.

Why travel by train to Oslo?

Trains allow visitors to travel directly into the heart of Oslo, making time-consuming taxi or bus transfers much less likely. That's not the case when travelers arrive at Gardermoen Airport, which is around 30 miles out of town, so rail transport has immediate advantages in terms of convenience. It's also more enjoyable on a basic level. The scenery of Scandinavia is gorgeous, and there are few better vantage points than a train carriage. Additionally, rail transport in Norway, Sweden, and Denmark tends to be very efficient, so travelers won't usually have to worry about mix-ups and delays. Instead, trains to Oslo deliver seamless journeys to the center of town.

Before you travel to Oslo by train - good to know!

When visitors get to Oslo, navigating the city is very simple. The capital's Metro network offers excellent coverage and travelers can buy multi-day passes to keep travel costs very low. When that's been arranged, it's time to start sightseeing. TusenFryd is often a starting point for families, with its wide range of amusement park rides, but the Viking Ship Museum is a must for history buffs. See Munch's "Scream" at the National Gallery before taking in the Nobels Fredssente, which is dedicated solely to the achievements of Nobel Prize Winners. Inspiring, friendly, and full of history, Oslo is a great place to spend time.
