Best time for a trip to Oslo
Both summer and winter are popular times to visit Oslo. Norwegian Wood, held each summer, is a large music festival with a focus on pop and rock from the golden age. Øyafestival, another popular summer music festival, attracts a younger crowd, with electronic, indie and hip hop music taking center stage. Easter and Christmas festivities in Oslo are particularly popular with the snowy winter scenery of the city adding to the magic of the season.
