Central Oslo is the heart of the city -- the most crowded and traffic-congested, but also the most convenient place to stay. Those on the most rushed of schedules -- the average visitor spends only 2 days in Oslo -- will book accommodations in the center. It is not a real neighborhood, but it is the core of the city, as Piccadilly Circus is to London. Most Oslo hotels and restaurants are here, as are almost 50 museums and galleries -- enough to fill many a rainy day. The best of the lot include Akershus Castle, the Historical Museum, and the National Gallery as you can see in Oslo neighborhoods map. The Old Town (or Gamlebyen) lies south of the Parliament Building (the Stortinget) and Karl Johans Gate. This section contains some of the city old-fashioned restaurants, along with the Norwegian Resistance Museum and the Old Town Hall. A stay here is the same as staying in central Oslo . The only difference is that the streets of the Old Town have more old-fashioned Norwegian flavor than the more modern parts of central Oslo.

Aker Brygge is Oslo newest neighborhood, an excellent place for dining and diversions, but not for hotels as it is sadly lacking in those. For sights along the waterfront, it is the best place for long walks to take in the port life. It emerged near the mouth of the Oslofjord in the old wharf area formerly used for shipbuilding yards. Fueled by oil wealth, steel-and-glass buildings now rise from what had been a relatively dilapidated section. Some of the best shops, theaters, restaurants, and cultural attractions are here, along with apartments for such well-heeled owners as Diana Ross as its shown in Oslo neighborhoods map. The West End is a chic residential area graced with some of the city finest hotels and restaurants. It is a more tranquil setting than the center and only 15 minutes away by public transportation. Many visitors who stay here do not mind the short commute and prefer this area to the more traffic-clogged center. However, for walking and sightseeing, central Oslo and its port are more alluring. There is little to see in the West End unless you like walking up and down pleasant residential streets.

Farther west -- 6km (3 3/4 miles) by car, but better reached by car ferry -- is the Bygdøy peninsula. Here you will find such attractions as the Norwegian Folk Museum, the Viking ships, the polar ship Fram, and the Kon-Tiki Museum. Break up your sightseeing venture with a meal here, but plan to stay elsewhere. The suburb of Frogner begins as its mentioned in Oslo neighborhoods map.8km (1/2 mile) west of Oslo center and stretches for a mile or so. Unless you specifically have business here, you can probably skip this section of the city. Lying behind the S-station, the main rail station for Oslo, is the Grønland district, where many Oslovians go for ethnic dining. There is little of sightseeing interest in this ghettolike area. Many refugees from Pakistan and India, among other countries, fill the area; however, the town best Indian and Pakistani restaurants lie within more upscale neighborhoods. Many Oslo neighborhoods lie along the Oslofjord, which stretches more than 97km (60 miles) north from the Skagerrak to Oslo.

In addition to the city centre, Oslo has 15 administrative districts, or boroughs. Known in Norwegian as a bydel (plural: bydeler), each district is overseen by a district committee, elected every four years by city residents at the same time as the regular city council elections. The current 15 districts were created when a local government reform in 2004 reduced the number from 25 as you can see in Oslo districts map. The compact city centre of Oslo is not a separate district, as the city council prefers to take on the management of land use itself. However, there are some residents of the central district, so responsibility for these falls to St Hanshaugen. Previously, Bygdøy-Frogner and Gamle Oslo had some responsibility. The area defined as sentrum includes Vika, Kvadraturen, the streets north of Karl Johans gate, the western half of Bjørvika, and Vaterland.

The lengthy Alna district covers a lot of eastern Oslo Groruddalen valley. It stretches from Tveita and Teisen all the way out to Furuset, broadly following the E6 out of the city. Specific areas included in Alna as its shown in Oslo districts map are: Furuset, Lindeberg, Haugerud, Trosterud, Ellingsrud, Tveita, Teisen and Hellerudtoppen. Together with Søndre Nordstrand, the district has the second highest share of immigrant residents in the city. To the north/north-west of Alna lies Bjerke, a district with expansion plans in the years to come. Specific areas included in Bjerke are: Refstad, Veitvet, Linderud, Ulven and Årvoll. The immigrant population of Bjerke is above the city average. Considered one of the city more desirable districts, Frogner covers much of the inner city west of the city centre, including Frogner Park and the leafy Bygdøy peninsula.

Gamle Oslo (Old Oslo) is an area full of diversity and rapid economic change. Major development projects are taking place or planned throughout the district. Specific areas included in Gamle Oslo as its mentioned in Oslo districts map are: Grønland, Kampen, Enerhaugen (including parts of Gamlebyen), Nedre Tøyen, Vålerenga, Ensjø (inc. Valle), Etterstad (inc. Helsfyr and Brynseng, Kværnerbyen (including parts of Gamlebyen, Ryenberget and Nygårdskollen) and the Bispevika area of downtown Oslo (inc. Sørenga, Loenga, Grønlia, and the eastern part of Bjørvika). Located in the city north-east corner next to the Lillomarka forest, Grorud is home to people from more than 150 nations. Specific areas included in Grorud are: Ammerud, Grorud, Kalbakken, Rødtvet, Nordtvet and Romsås. The immigrant population of Grorud is well above the city average. Just to the north of the city centre lies Grünerløkka, a popular area with young couples and newcomers to the city.
