This year, Lommedalsbanen is still going strong. A small but very nice attraction just outside of Oslo for the whole family. Lommedalsbanen is driven by enthusiasts loving trains and is a very nice reason for getting all of the members in your family out. Including a very nice ride, you will also get one of Norway’s best waffles. So be sure to use some hours once you arrive.
When arriving, you will get history of the whole train route. There are often many parents with children here as its mostly something that children loves a lot. Distrita can really recommend to anyone coming to Oslo in June, August, September and even in December 2015.

If you know where Bærums Verk is, then it is really easy to find when driving with car. There are plenty of parking possibilities near where the train goes.
From Røa Haslum or Sandvika you should drive towards Bærums Verk, then go to Lommedalsveien at it’s very end, and then drive on Kampeveien and Tolverudveien. Then follow the signs and you will find it. Sometimes you will even hear the train sound when approaching.
If you are new to Oslo and its surroundings. There is a public transportation connection with buss to Lommedalsbanen. The busses are green and can be a little bit more expensive than the red busses in Oslo. The green busses have longer routes and crosses the Oslo border. If you really know where Oslo main buss station is (Oslo Bussterminal), then its easy to get there, but you can also take the Bus 143 from several stations also.
