Traveling to and within Oslo

From the airport Gardermoen to Oslo city centre

The easiest and fastest way to get to Oslo from Gardermoen airport is the Airport Express Train, which leaves every 10 minutes during weekdays and takes 20 minutes to Oslo Central station.

Another option is the railway (Norges Statsbaner NSB), less frequent and less costly

The third option is the airport buses:

  • Flybussekspressen, which stops at the Rikshospitalet close to the conference venue 
  • Flybussen, which goes to the Bus terminal next to Oslo Central railway station.

In Oslo
