Fornebu is housing some of Norway´s largest businesses, and hence some spectacular buildings are to be seen in the surroundings nearby the hotel.
There is a great “park” nearby – the Nansen Park, a tribute to Norway´s national hero – Fridtjof Nansen, the explorer, scientist, diplomat, humanitarian and Nobel Peace Prize laureate. The hotel is located only a 10-minute drive from Bygdøy, where numerous museums are located; Kontiki, Fram, The Viking Ship Museum, Norsk Folkemuseum and the Norwegian Maritime Museum.
