The 18 coolest neighbourhoods in Europe to visit in 2018, according to the world’s top travel experts

Finally, visit Grünerløkka, Oslo — the home of Europe’s coolest neighbourhood.

Grünerløkka’s cool shops, and colourful streets, and community atmosphere meant that the district in Oslo was recommended by not one, but three different travel experts — making it it the clear, must-see European neighbourhood for the year ahead.

“Grünerløkka in Oslo is pretty magic,” said Gilbert Ott, the brains behind frequent flier tips and tricks site God Save The Points.

“It’s unapologetically hip, in a very Scandinavian way. Like most of Scandinavia, it’s got such a unique style and way of life that it wouldn’t ever change for tourists. You either love it or hate it, but if you like coffee, cocktails, and nice artsy stuff — it’s one of the best places on earth.

“Oslo, in general, is pretty cool too,” Ott added. “There’s a very strong sense of terroir with everything here. The cocktails use weird Scandi ingredients, so drinking is very, very local. Same with the food. Where else are you going to have reindeer tartare?”
