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.
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.
