The City of Oslo
Hotel Continental is in the heart of Oslo – Norway’s capital and largest city, with a population of 575,000. Oslo has been the official capital of Norway since the country first got its own constitution in 1814. The Parliament, called the Storting, the government quarter and the Royal Palace are all within short walking distance of Hotel Continental.
Oslo has a unique location, nestled between the fjord with its beaches and boats and the forest-clad hills, and thus enjoys the best of both worlds. The city has many parks and green spaces, as well as a network of prepared cross-country skiing tracks and eight downhill slopes within the city limits.
