Oslo praised by German newspaper
Berliner Morgenpost was particularly impressed with Oslo’s architecture, atmposphere and closeness to nature.
The newspaper called Oslo “the best-preserved German city” because of the dominating neoclassical and jugend architectural styles. The popular Grünerløkka area was compared to Berlin’s Prenzlauer Berg, and the Royal Palace “was reminiscent of (German architect) Schinkel”.
The German journalist, Roland Mischke, liked “the green capital” and Oslo’s closeness to nature and the Oslo Fjord, and adds that the Bygdøy peninsula was one of his favourite parts of the city.
Berliner Morgenpost is the second-largest newspaper in the German capital, with a daily readership of over 400,000. The article “Alles Oslo, oder was?” was printed on 3 May and is not available online.
