It's not going to be a milestone in Norway's reopening, but from Monday, you can sip cocktails in Oslo, go to an amusement park and take a swimming lesson!

From June 1, bars which don't serve food will be able to open in Oslo, amusement parks will be allowed to reopen across Norway, and school swimming lessons and other forms of organised swimming will be able to resume. 


Himkok, the Oslo-based distillery and cocktail bar, has been one of the institutions worst hit by Oslo city council's decision to delay allowing bars to reopen long after pubs serving food opened up.

Kongeparken in Stavanger appears to be the only major amusement park actually planning to open on Monday June 1 itself.

"We're going to be working super hard to make the park and safe and to put in place the necessary infection protection information so that both guests and adventurers can enjoy a safe and pleasant park," the park wrote on its website. 

Hunderfossen Adventure Park, north of Lillehammer, will open on June 6, as will Mikkelparken near Bergen. 

Oslo's biggest amusement park, Tusenfryd, has decided to wait until June 13.
