Getting there

Cochs pensjonat is situated within walking distance from Nationaltheatret, with tram, bus, tubeway
and train connections.
From Gardermoen Airport, there are two options:
Option 1 (recommended): Flytoget (the airport express train) with departure every 15 minutes. The
train stops at the Nationaltheatret. From here a ten-minute walk through Slottsparken brings you to
Cochs pensjonat.
Option 2 (slightly cheaper): Flybussen (the airport bus) stops near the SAS hotel in Oslo. From here a
five-minute walk along Slottsparken brings you to Cochs pensjonat.
For more information on both, www.flytoget.no and www.flybussen.no
If you arrive at the Central station (Oslo sentralstasjon), the easiest and quickest way to Cochs
pensjonat is either by bus (no 31 and 30) or tube (all west bound lines) to the Nationaltheatret, and
walk from there
