Dating in oslo
This iconic Oslo site is free to enter, and you can spend a good deal of time discussing all the statues, exploring the river bank paths and enjoying the sun and a picnic – ideally with a one-time BBQ grill – in the sunshine.
This is a great space for a gentle stroll, which is perfect for relieving awkwardness and getting the conversation to flow.
You can get yourself some beautiful views, isolation and well-earned early nights together – again, this is probably not a first-date date, but if you know each other well it’s a great way to get out of your normal routine.
Not everyone will find the idea of getting sweaty and out of breath on a first date appealing – at least not from hiking.
In summer, this is a great thing to take advantage of for an adventurous date in the relative wilderness.
For a more classic and relaxed winter date, head down to the square between the National Theatre and Parliament in the city centre.
The water sculpture lake is converted into the Spikersuppa ice skating rink every winter.
In summer, the areas surrounding the city centre really open up with plenty of opportunities for dates.
One of the nicest escapes from the city is taking a boat (free if you have the Ruter public transport ticket) from Aker Brygge to one of the many little islands minutes away in the Oslo Fjord.
