Oslo Pass Vigeland Discount

Visiting Oslo on a Pass Review | Is the Oslo Pass Worth It?

Is Oslo Pass worth buying in 2023? A review of the city card opening doors for free transportation and free museum access, as well as discounted meals and shopping in Oslo.  


Oslo is so beautiful! Still, a rather expensive city to visit, explore and fully enjoy.

Thankfully, magical fjords sightseeing, delicious Norwegian food and art spaces can all come with a discount when using Oslo Pass. Acting as an all-in-one complete sightseeing solution for Oslo visitors, the card easily replaces individual museum or transportation passes and discount tickets.

Oslo Pass does com with an upfront cost, but it claims substantial savings for the active tourists.

I had the opportunity to give Oslo Pass a try during November, together with my husband. We love winter trips! Therefore, Oslo was a great destination despite the cold weather. We were there for 4 full days, from Friday to Monday. But the 4 days in Oslo passed so fast that it seemed more like a weekend getaway.

Considering that on Mondays most museums are closed, we used the Oslo pass at the beginning of our trip. More specifically, from Friday to Sunday. And kept a bunch of free things to do and see in Oslo (without a pass) for a Monday morning.
