Oslo Street Art: Colourful Tøyen, Norway


On our last morning in Oslo after a nice and light breakfast at a local bakery we did a self guided street art walking tour in the neighbourhood of Tøyen, where we stayed during our long weekend in Oslo.street art toyen osloTøyen is a lively and diverse neighbourhood with a multicultural community, ethnic shops, cool and hip bars, coffee shops and restaurants. The Munch Museum is the main attraction of the area but alongside top of the class traditional art, Tøyen  has been turned into one of Oslo’s most interesting and vibrant street art scenes. I learned from locals that Tøyen aims at becoming Scandinavia’s largest outdoor street art gallery before the Munch Museum leaves the area in 2020. Tøyen for sure should be on your Oslo bucket list if you are into street art and wish to experience things out of the ordinary.

Now let’s take a look at some of the most impressive murals and colourful street art pieces that we discovered in Tøyen.street art toyen oslostreet art toyen oslostreet art toyen oslostreet art toyen oslostreet art toyen oslostreet art toyen oslo

How to get to Tøyen street art district

Tøyen is located a couple of kilometres outside Oslo city centre, only 3 minutes by metro from Oslo Central Station. All eastbound metro lines stop at Tøyen station. Our hotel was conveniently situated in Tøyen just across the road from Tøyen metro station and Tøyen Torg shopping centre. The majority of the murals are just a couple of minutes walk down the road from Tøyen metro station and the Norwegian Hotel.

This interactive street art map created by Visit Oslo is very handy when exploring the street art district in Tøyen. It lists all the best spots and street art pieces both in Tøyen and elsewhere in Oslo.street art toyen oslo
