Autumn in Norway means increasing darkness and decreasing temperatures. The Norwegian word, høst, literally translates to the main activity of this season: harvest. Though agriculture is no longer as dominant as it once was in Norway, there are still remnants of its influence in the culture and lifestyles of many Norwegians.
This weekend, Østbanehallen offered a taste of autumn with guided tours of the newly refurbished hall and its assortment of restaurants. Conveniently situated by the Opera House and Karl Johans gate, Østbanehallen is the oldest part of Oslo Central Station and offers a glimpse into Oslo’s history and how rapidly the city has adapted to a changing world.
