Close to everything
House of Oslo is located at the heart of Oslo’s central business district, in the landmark VIA building.
VIA opens in the summer of 2021, and with its four diagonal walk-throughs, the building will become a preferred path for foot traffic between Nationaltheatret Station, Vika and Aker Brygge. Take a break with a delicious cup of coffee in beautiful surroundings — it doesn’t matter if you’re just passing through or if you have reached your destination.
No matter if you walk or bike, or if you take the bus, boat, tram or train, VIA is always nearby. Nationaltheatret station is a 3-minute walk away. Aker Brygge is a 2-minute walk away, and the nearest bus and tram stop is only a 1-minute walk away — even in heels.
From bike parking and a gym with locker rooms under ground — to a roof terrace with panoramic views on the 12th floor: VIA and House of Oslo offer exclusive amenities.
You’re never far away from any form of public transportation at VIA. Frequent departures mean you have the freedom and flexibility to travel whenever you want, without having to plan too far in advance.
