TravelPod Member ReviewsThon Hotel Vika Atrium Oslo
We chose this hotel without knowing the city of Oslo so that is always risky. But for us (family with 2 young kids) it turned out to be a good choice. Important to us were the location (within walking distance of the city centre), a secured parking for the car, and the room and breakfast were very much OK. If ever we were to go back to Oslo, I believe we would stay here again.

Construction started in 2003 and the completed in 2007, ahead of schedule and 300 million NOK (~US$52 million) under ...
... the Tekniska Museet, or Science Museum, as they have a temporary feature called "Game On" which is an exhibition of video games. First I visited all of the normal exhibitions, which included some pretty interesting exhibits like an original steam fire engine, but also some really ordinary things, like an old generation iMac, a not terribly old diesel electric generator, and a fridge that was actually newer than the one I have at home. There's a ...
... trek. It was pretty effortless compared to a few treks we had done lately but it was challenging enough. We weren’t alone sadly, many tourists were walking to the well-known landmark – all ages, sizes and footwear were to be seen. At the top we saw many people doing photos and decided it was our only shot to see over the edge of the staggering 600m straight down so not only did we look over (our ...
