Other relevant information

Prices are generally high in Norway, but convenience stores are a lot cheaper than kiosks and small shops. Be advised that a beer at a cafe/restaurant will cost you around 130 NOK/ 13 Euros.

Norwegians are quite time sensitive, so when the program states something starts at 12, it starts at 12. Be on time!

You can not buy alcohol in kiosks. Beer can be bought at convenience stores (until 20.00 on weekdays or 18:00 on Saturdays. No alchohol sold in stores on Sundays). For wine and spirits you need to go to Vinmonopolet.
