Summer in Oslo with baby/toddlers
July has arrived and everyoneÂ´s on holiday. No more baby song, baby swimming or open day care. DonÂ´t worry! ThereÂ´s still plenty to do. IÂ´ve made a section on Summer in Oslo with toddlers
. Here youÂ´ll find activities for babies, kids and parents! Theatre plays, puppet theatre, farms, exercising with babies, music festivals, and much more :)
Strolls and new cafÃ©s
A couple of new walks
have been added. One is around beautiful NÃ¸klevann, with a 2 hour walk around it and possibilities for picnics and swimming along the way, as well as a coffee and waffles at the Rustadsaga cafe. The other one is more urban and starts at Tjuvholmen and ends in SÃ¸renga. You walk by the sea, and parts of the way is the new promenade between the Opera and the Cruise terminal. YouÂ´ll enjoy some architectural pearls, but youÂ´ll also endure some construction work. You get an idea of what Oslo will look like in a couple of years! Enjoy! As for cafÃ©s, I can recommend the new outdoor cafÃ© at Dansens hus (by Mathallen).
Biking with kids
For those who have bought a bike trailer, there are quite a few rides
to try out. We recently bought ours and weÂ´ve done two really good rides. One of them is from GrunerlÃ¸kka along the Akerselva river up to Maridalsvannet - very nice! The other one is a little like the above-mentioned stroll, from Carl Berner/GrunerlÃ¸kka, down past the Munch Museum, over GrÃ¸nland and down to SÃ¸renga, then by the sea past the Opera, Vippetangen, Aker Brygge and Tjuvholmen, continuing out by Frogner marina and out to BygdÃ¸y - Paradisbukta and Huk. We combined it with a visit to the new GjÃ¸a part of the Fram Museum. Really nice ride - a sweet mix of urban and countryside. Read more about bike rides with kids here

Have a great summer!
