Brilliant service and information

This visitor centre is located within the central train station and easy to find. It’s also very busy. The lady we spoke to was extremely helpful and provided suggestions outside our queries. Very useful for getting public transport advice and determining if an Oslo Pass is suitable for you.

We popped in quickly just to look at the leaflets and some maps. Staff were pleasant. Didn't really require their help to much as we knew what we wanted to get.

Well worth a visit
Dec 2019
The Visitor Centre is well placed in the centre of the city, opposite good hotels and eateries...in the square.
They opened at 9 a.m. and readily supplied us with information needed to buy the Oslo Card, which was good for 48 hours enabling entry to many museums, transport etc.
Having the card is a real bonus, money wise, and also for convenience.

Rude lady staff
Dec 2019 • Solo
I came from Bergen and Tromso where I focused my planning so I went straight to this office upon arrival to see what tours/ activities Oslo has to offer. The lady who assisted me on Dec 8,19 ( morning) seems irritated and not helpful at all. She asks me what are my plans and I told her I really dont have one and she was irritated. She did not mention any tours/ activities to me instead she just laid down the map and told me where I was The guy at my hotel upon checking in has more recommendations like; malls, Christmas market, restaurants and things that I can do for a snowy day. People working in a tourist center should realized that when a person steps in to their office - it means we dont have plans so we need information.

Great advice
Nov 2019 • Couples
Highly recommend going here the first day in Oslo. There was a wide variety of maps, useful brochures and a very helpful staff. They are not in a rush and are very friendly. Public transportation tickets can be purchased here.
