Sandvika Storsenter is one of Norway's largest shopping centers. They claim to offer just as much as the entirety of central Oslo when it comes to shops and restaurants. There is a wide range of shops and you can basically get everything you need under one roof. Clothes, gifts, food and hobby items are just a few examples. The center manages to combine a high level of quality with a relaxed atmosphere. There is also a play area for children aged three to eight, and if you want to take the kids with you around the shops, you can hire a cart to push the little ones in. There are different shops and plenty of free parking places, and all this is only ten minutes from Oslo.
This is a house full of Christmas all year round. Norway's largest Christmas shop, this is also Santa's main post office in Norway, with its own official postage stamp. The shop answers letters addressed to Father Christmas by children from all over the world. A collection of 200,000 letters from children is on display in the tourist information office, next to Julehuset ("Christmas House"). A nice day trip can be made from Oslo, here to Drobak. Check out the website for more information.
This is a modern shopping center in a beautiful environment of old buildings and natural scenery. It contains ordinary shops like any shopping arcade, but also workshops for glass-blowing and various other crafts, as well as galleries and museums. It is almost like a park, with a small river running through. There is an exhibition of sculptures that changes as they are sold. There are many places to eat and drink in, and in the summer also an outdoor marketplace. The history of Brums Verk started in 1603 when a promising vein of iron ore was found there. Gradually Brums Verk became the leading ironworks in Akershus. In 1988 the owners received an international architectural prize for building aesthetics for this new development. They also have free parking places.
The Italian house of Benetton is famous for bright and colorful, high-quality garments, especially for children but also for women. Classic and elegant basic clothes such as skirts, jackets and suits come in bright as well as calmer colors. The Sisley collection is designed for younger women, and successfully combines classic and playful styles in funky, original clothes.
