I’ve booked a trip to Olso and I’m staying around hausmanns. Really thought that compared to Paris, Oslo is a pretty pretty safe city. Brugata and the river is probably the worst neighborhood in Oslo. If you’re staying at Anker, the tram stop is pretty close. If you’re walking I guess Torggata will be the safest street to walk to the city centre, and you’re also pretty close to Grünerløkka on the other side of the river, that is a more hip part of the city. Norway has a relatively low level of crime in comparison to the U. Western European countries with large populations.
I think Oslo is more than less safe. But all European hotspots have organized crime, speaking of theft and robbery. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes there – I would not worry. Violent crime is very rare in Norway. There are some drug dealers in that area, just ignore them.
On public transport there has been some pickpockets. At night I would not flash a wallet on the street, dont use ATMs on the street at night. Seriously, we walked all over, including the Gronland area, which was also supposed to be dodgy. They dodgiest area in Oslo felt a lot safer than the safest area in Manchester! It’s a very clean, orderly city and totally non-threatening.
The area around Hausmanns gate has an above-average number of drug users, because some of the social services they frequent are in the vicinity. I frequently pass through the area alone at all hours of the day and night, and I have never had a problem. Typically these people keep to themselves, and if you don’t bother them, they don’t bother you. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay in that area, and based on the nearby housing prices, I’m not the only one! I would be arriving Oslo Airport at 10. You are nowhere near those areas – and even those are safe.
Take the train to Nationaltheatret and walk to the hotel. This is one of the best areas in Oslo, there will be plenty of people around and absolutely no danger. In midsummer it will still be light. The Scandic Victoria isn’t particularly close to the neighborhood discussed in this post, but there is zero reason to take a taxi from the airport instead of the train I f safety is your concern. Not to mention it’s far more likely to be in a traffic accident on the motorway. Or maybe you’re expecting to travel with hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash or gold? In that case, I can understand being a little wary of carrying it on the train.
But you’d probably be fine as long as you kept it in a bag and didn’t wave it around offering it to people. Can ferries be avoided between Bergen and Odda? Suggestions on what to do with luggage while in Oslo? A Ferry from Oslo to Amsterdam? How to get from Gardermoen airport to Rygge airport in Oslo? When is the best time to visit?
