A visit to Oslo not only involves Vikings, dragons, and good food, but also The Scream. One of the most famous pictures by Edward Munch, there are in fact, four versions of The Scream, and when in Oslo, posing in front of one of them is a must-do for any visitor. There is one version at the National Gallery (currently closed until June 2022), and, when I went, there were two versions at the Munch Museum. Alas, only one was on display. And that is also the reason behind the opening of the new Munch Museum, fittingly called MUNCH, opening on October 22, 2021. The old museum simply did not have sufficient exhibition space for the 28,000-odd pictures in its collection.
Pro Tip: Even if it is a little colder than in the summer months, going for a fjord cruise brings its own delights in fall: The trees along the coastline and on the islands burst into amazing orange and red hues. Another good spot for foliage viewing is the Vigeland Sculpture Park.
