Just 18km outside Oslo and a short distance from Gardermoen Airport lies Lillestrom. The city's history stretches back centuries, but the originally swampy area developed alongside that of the timber industry, and Lillestrom, became an important centre of culture in Norway in its own right.
Visitors staying at the Radisson Blu's Gardermoen Hotel will be able to commute easily between Oslo and Lillestrom, whether to experience Norwegian culture or tend to business during their stay.
Modern initiatives in Lillestrom
Lillestrom may be smaller in size when compared to Oslo, but it's also seen a number of changes recently to make it an exciting destination worth a second look.
Visitors to our Oslo Airport hotel can visit Lillestrom and take part in its annual city fair, which runs for four days each year and features Norwegian musicians, plenty of food stalls and rides. In addition to being a great introduction to Norwegian music and culture, the Lillestrom city fair is also free of charge.
The Lillestrom city government has also funded initiatives to reinvigorate the city's arts and cultural attractions, including the renovation of an old cinema and promoting performances at the Akershus Theatre. In addition, Lillestrom hosts many art galleries, as well as an orchestra and various music clubs.
