Karl Johans gate is Oslo’s main street, stretching from the city’s central train station to the Royal Palace. It’s possible to walk the entire length of it in about fifteen minutes, but the point isn’t to hurry. The pedestrian-only boulevard is lined with cafés and bars, while street performers entertain the window shoppers. You can also scratch off a number of must-sees on your list—in addition to the Royal Palace and the train station, the National Theatre and Norway’s Parliament sit off of Karl Johans gate. You’ll find many familiar international brands on the street, but one local shopping favorite is Paléet. This small mall which reopened in late 2014 after being renovated has a few dozen shops and several restaurants. It’s a good stop if you are looking for beautifully designed gifts from your Norwegian trip.
