Gardermoen From Plane To Train

Mon May 09, 2011 12:31 pm

Not well acquainted with OSL-Gardermoen airport very well, so here's my question:

My flight arrives at 1330 and my train for Lillehammer departs at 1405 - is this enough time, or should I book a later train via www.nsb.no ?

(no idea, how far it's walking distance from my KLM flight, via arrivals, to the train platform)

Your input appreciated !!!
don't throw away tomorrow !

If you have handluggage only you should be ok, less then 10 minutes from the gate to the station.
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

Pieter,
if you are in a hurry, DO NOT follow the hoard of locals into the Dutyfree Shop upon Arrival at OSL. D:

After exiting the luggage area, turn right then walk for 2 minutes.
As 35 minutes can be a close call, especially in case your flight is late, consider to purchase you rail tickets online.

Am I right to assume you are arriving from a Schengen country (I assumed the Netherlands)?

35 minutes gate to train is enough, assuming no luggage and passport control, otherwise it can get a bit tight.
