Staff spoke English perfectly, explained the Oslo card to us in detail, and helped with arrangements. They are open long hours and are located right in the main train station directly across from the Comfort Hotel.

In every city there should be a visitor center like this, with many informations available. The team is always ready to help, answer and reassure tourists. It is the main place to request the Oslo pass and is located outside the central station.

We located the Oslo Visitor Centre quite easily once we were in the Oslo Central Station. They were busy but we were soon served. It was great they sold Oslo Passes – very convenient. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful.
