No one’s ever doubted Oslo’s cool factor. “Trendy” is hardly the word to describe the coolness of this capital city with a great college town vibe. The capital of Norway’s capital of cool is the Grünerløkka neighborhood, a former mill town with a surprisingly cheery exterior. Like in a lot of post-industrial parts of town, when the factories left, the creative types moved in to Grünerløkka and brought with them a revitalization that makes the industrial look of the neighborhood somehow bright and whimsical. There’s no shortage of cafes and unique shops, attracting a crowd that is youthful and professional at the same time, so you can feel like you’re on the cutting edge of something while simultaneously feeling totally safe.
We’re happy to offer a whole block of super cool Grünerløkka apartments on our website. We think it’s better than staying downtown even though downtown is practically within spitting distance–either a 15 minute walk or a quick tram ride. We’ve listed a nice collection of studios, 1 bedrooms and even spacious 2 bedroom apartments in the heart of Grünerløkka all with fresh and modern interiors. We especially like the potted plants that seem right at home in each of these apartments and the balconies are great for watching some of the coolest Oslovians walking their dogs in their cool neighborhood drinking their excellent coffee. The ground floor apartments have nice little private terraces and in the spring and summer months, the leaves are practically coming through the windows, providing a lushness you rarely get in such an urban area.
Now’s as good a time as any to visit Oslo and check out Grünerløkka. The leaves outside may have dropped, but these leafy interiors are just the thing to hold you over until spring.
