About the neighbourhood
The nearest area for a nice walk is the Ekeberg forest and sports area and Brannfjell hill between us and the city centre. Part of the forest has recently been developed into the «Ekeberg skulpturpark» wher you can enjoy art by sculptors of world renown. If Henrik has spare time, he can tak you for a visit there for free. There is also a very good restaurant with a view of Oslo in the park. There is more information about Oslo from the Tourist Office on the living-room table.
In winter there is a short walk to skiing and playing grounds, and Tryvann vinterpark, for those who like advanced alpine skiing challenges, is easily accessible by metro. Oslo also has several hundred square kilometres of forests and lakes, with 100s of kms of paths in summer and professionally groomed cross-country...
