SUNDAY JAM SPOT 10:00AM SCULPTURE PARK
Ok. So we called it the nudie park to get your attention, but it isn´t completely wrong as you will be able to spot 600 nude people in bronze and granite there including “Monolitten” a 17 m tower of people carved out of one single piece of granite rock weighing 280 tons.
To get there
Jump on tram 12 from Oslo S. Get off at Frognerparken. Leaves every 10 minutes.
Bring tap water and lunch.
Frognerparken is Norways most visited tourist attraction, so we are expecting to entertain quite a big crowd of breathing people this sunday.
Other Jam Spots
Norway is a monarchy. Wether you like it or not. Our king likes gay people, and muslims, and we get to play frisbee in his garden.
FOREST LAKE JAMSPOT
Beautiful, fresh and green. Great for a cooling down in between the jams
SOFIENBERGPARKEN JAM SPOT
Historical jam spot from the beginning of Norwegian frisbee time. The hip part of town, Grünerløkka. All sort of people have picnic in this park and drink beer.
Oreilly´s beer hole is close by.
Green grass in many ways.
I´ll do my best to set you up in a spare room or a couch. Otherwise, you’ll have many Airbnbs around, some reasonably affordable hostels and tons of options on the other end of the scale. Check out the suggestions in the VIKING JAM map.
Free parking most places outside the central 10-15min by metro.
Free camping many places and very close to some of the jam spots.
