Lillestrøm Things to Do
This might be the only reason for many people to visit Lillestrøm. The Norway Trade Fairs moved from Sjølyst, Oslo, to Lillestrøm in 2004. A lot of different exhibitions are held here the whole year.
It is very centrally located. With expresstrain it only takes 9 minutes to the airport, and 10 minutes to Oslo. The trainstation is located about 2 minutes walk away.
Nearby is a hotel, and some restaurants. From the Trade Fair it is only a 5 minute walk to the city center.
This is probably one of the most visited places in Lillestrøm... ;)
Åråsen is the football stadion where the local team Lillestrøm SK meets other teams in the Norwegian Premier League (Eliteserien). The stadium has a capacity of 12.250.
This is most probably the only thing you will see of Lillestrøm...
The train from the airport to Oslo pass by Lillestrøm trainstation. If you take the expresstrain be sure not to blink, or you will miss the whole place... ;)
Expresstrain from Lillestrøm to the airport takes about 9 minutes, and from Lillestrøm to Oslo about 10 minutes. If you want to see some of the scenery along the way, take the normal train. It stops in every station, takes a lot longer, but it is cheaper and lets you see more.
The trainstation was built in 1854, and was a part of the first Norwegian railway between Oslo and Eidsvoll.
