"On time" Norway Local Custom Tip by jonkb

Norway Local Customs: 142 reviews and 125 photos

Being on time is regarded as polite in all Scandinavia. On time means that if you're invited to a party you should not come more than a few minutes before the agreed time, and not 10 minutes after.

Busses, trains etc. leave on the exact spot on time, and do not wait for anyone.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
