Transfer to/from the airports around Oslo

  • Oslo Airport Gardermoen (OSL) is 47km from the city centre and is the city’s main international airport.

  1. The cheapest way to get from Oslo Airport to the city centre is by train. Lines R12, RE11, and RE10 take 23 minutes to connect the airport with Oslo S, the city's central station, with an intermediate stop at Lillestrøm.

Trains leave the airport at 3, 13 and 43 minutes past every hour from 5:13am and 11:43pm. The only drawback is that they are commuter trains and therefore have no space for luggage and at rush hour you will probably have to stand up.
