Getting to the hotel from the airport

The fastest way of getting from the airport to Scandic Holberg Hotel is taking the Airport Express train to Nationaltheatret (National Theatre). The Airport Express train leaves every 20 minutes and the travel time is 25 minutes. When you get to Nationaltheatret station, walk along Frederiks gate past the Royal Palace. Turn left at the second exit after passing the royal palace and follow the tram line for approximate 250 metres, and you will see the hotel straight ahead on the corner of the square. The address is Holbergs plass 1 and the full walk takes about 8 minutes.

An alternative if you are less keen on walking is to take the airport shuttle bus to Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel. It leaves from platform 11 at the airport. This will take about 50 minutes. When you get to Radisson SAS Scandinavia Hotel, Scandic Holberg Hotel is just across the square.

Taking a taxi is about NOK 700-1000 depending on the time of day. Ask for a fixed price when starting the trip. However, we strongly recommend that you take the Airport Express train or shuttle bus to Oslo as it is both cheaper and faster.

Getting to the University of Oslo from the hotel

1. Ask in the hotel reception where you can buy a tram ticket, and where the tram line for tram 17 or 18 is, direction north (toward Rikshospitalet)

2. The tram leaves just outside your hotel. You can take both line 17 and 18; they go in the same direction.

3. After 9 minutes, exit at station Universitetet Blindern.

4. Then, on the left, you have two tall buildings. the Eilert Sundt building is the one to the left.

You may also walk 8 minutes to the Nationalteateret metro station and take the Subway line 5 ("Sognsvann" or "Ringen via Majorstuen") or line 4 ("Vestli via Majorstuen") westbound to Forskningsparken. Exit the platform on the same side where you arrived, and walk straight until you come to the University. Continue to the second tall (12-story) building, which is the Eilert Sundt building.
