and lo­cal bit­ter di­ges­tif Marka, or the “Gin­ger Club” – an up­date on the Clover Club with rasp­berry liqueur and a rasp­berry spirit, both dis­tilled in Nor­way. Karl Jo­hans Gate 31; grand.no

At its heart is the story of the in­cum­bent lau­re­ate Colom­bian pres­i­dent Juan Manuel San­tos, whose land­mark peace deal with Farc armed rebels in 2016 ended a bloody 52-year war. Run­ning un­til Novem­ber 26, the “Hope Over Fear” pho­tog­ra­phy ex­hi­bi­tion shows the re­al­ity of the Colom­bian con­flict, de­pict­ing soldiers work­ing to clear ar­eas of land­mines, Colom­bian coca pick­ers and Farc mem­bers pre­par­ing to tran­si­tion to nor­mal life. Open Tues-Sun 10am-6pm dur­ing win­ter (daily in sum­mer); kr 100 (£9.60). Bryn­julf Bulls Plass 1; no­bel­peace­cen­ter.org

4From the pier op­po­site, take a ten-minute ferry ride (th­ese run March to Oc­to­ber) to Byg­doy, on the west­ern edge of the penin­sula. This is one of the city’s more well-heeled neigh­bour­hoods, with wide-set Amer­i­can-style av­enues and grand homes. A five-minute walk from the jetty is the Nor­we­gian Folk Mu­seum. Its in­door and out­door col­lec­tions show how peo­ple lived be­fore the In­dus­trial Rev­o­lu­tion, fea­tur­ing arte­facts from Nor­way’s indige­nous Sami peo­ple and re­pro­duc­tions of tra­di­tional 18thand 19th-cen­tury homes, with in­te­ri­ors fur­nished as they would have been at the time.

Ex­hi­bi­tions in­clude “Queer­ing Sapmi”, a pho­tog­ra­phy project about LGBT iden­ti­ties among the Sami, on un­til Oc­to­ber 15. Open week­days 11am-3pm, week­ends 11am-4pm from Sep­tem­ber 15 to May 14 (other­wise daily 10am-6pm); kr 130 (£12.50). Mu­se­umsveien 10; norsk­folke­mu­seum.no VIGELAND PARK
