Excursion on Thursday afternoon
On Thursday afternoon, there will be an excursion.
The afternoon session will end at 14:20, after which we will travel to the museum island (OK, peninsula) Bygdøy by bus.
From about 15:00 to 16:00, we will be shown around "folkemuseet", an open air museum of cultural history, where we will see some traditional Norwegian architecture, including an ancient stave church
After this, we will walk a short distance to the Viking ship museum, where we will have about 45 minutes. We then walk (possibly take the bus) to the quay at Bygdøynes, where a boat is waiting for us.
From about 17:30 to 19:00 we will enjoy a boat tour on the Oslo fjord with its many beautiful islands, ending at Hvalstrandbad, the location of the restaurant for our conference dinner.
At about 23:00, the busses will drive us back into town, passing by Hotel Gyldenløve and the student accommodation at Kringsjå.
'Little excursion' on Tuesday evening
We will stop the technical sessions a little earlier on Tuesday afternoon. We want to give those who arrived on Tuesday some time to get rid of their luggage. At 17:00, we will meet at Majorstua station, near Hotel Gyldenløve, at this spot.
We will then take a walk through Frongerparken, a famous park full of statues by the Norwegian sculptor Vigeland.
From there, we will continue to the Town Hall, where there will be a reception at 19:00.
We intend to bring some food along which you can eat while walking, so we don't arrive completely starved at the reception.
