“Tourist: Take the subway up and take a stroll round the lake”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

Always people walking/running. Easy to find the way around the lake, No restaurants, but a place to by an ice-cream in the summer. Family's having the lunch with them in summer, winter you have to use ski.
Just a quiet place. Subway takes 15-20 min from town center (beware of tickets, you might save a lot to have a look on ruter.no)

“Access to Nordmarka”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

Songsvann is a great point of departure for walking in Nordmarka. It is easy to walk into Ullevålsæter and dozens of other great places in the forest. In the winter it is a great place to start ski trips.

“Great cheap day for picnic”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

Right at the end of the Sognvann train line. A short walk through the car park and you are in a gorgeous forrest around a beautiful lake - and all only 20 min from the centre of Oslo. Take a picnic - especially water, sunscreen and a hat. And your swimming costume - if you're brave enough - it's rather chilly.

“Nice starting point for getting out, but too crowded”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Maybe the most visited place in the Oslo forest areas, a nice walkway about 3 km around the water. Very nice starting point for going for longer hikes though.
