The best Insta spots of the season | Autumn in Oslo

Top autumn Insta spots

Autumn in Oslo is more than rainy days. It's also warm colours and beautiful afternoon light. So get your camera out and go catch the spirit of the season. And tag your shots from Oslo with #visitoslo so we can see what you've been up to!

These are our favourite autumn Instagram spots: 

The Botanical Garden

Oslo has many so-called green lungs, and the Botanical Garden in Tøyen is one of the greenest of them all. Or, if you visit during autumn, it's more like "red, gold and green" – the perfect hiding place for a karma chameleon! Find the Botanical Garden on the map

Hønse-Lovisas hus

Of all the lovely places along the Akerselva river, the red house of "Hen Lovisa" is probably the cutest. From across the river you can get great shots of the house and the waterfalls. When your fingers start freezing, step inside for a waffle and a coffee! Lovisa herself probably won't be there, seeing as she lived in the 19th century. Oh yeah, and she's made up … Find Hønse-Lovisas hus on the map

The National Library

The National Library of Norway describe their building as "grey on the outside, but colourful on the inside". Clearly, they forgot how it looks in the fall! With bright-red leaves climbing the walls, the monumental building doesn't go unnoticed. Find the National Library on the map

Vigeland Sculpture Park

This is one of the most photographed places in Oslo, and for good reason! The park is packed with beautiful, strange, funny, creepy characters, and the golden backdrop of the season really makes them stand out! With 212 different sculptures, you can create your own unique take on the art. Find Vigeland Sculpture Park on the map


Walking down this narrow, cobbled street, it's easy to forget you're just a few blocks from downtown Oslo. It's also easy to forget that the small, 19th-century houses are inhabited, so you'll have to settle for exterior shots. Find Damstredet on the map

Sognsvann, Oslomarka

'Oslomarka' refers to the vast forested area surrounding Oslo, and is the place to go if you're into the outdoorsy stuff! The lake Sognsvann is a great starting point, as accessible as it is beautiful. Catch the subway line #5 towards Sognsvann and get off at the final stop. Find Sognsvann on the map
