Besides to catch a flight, have you ever really wanted to spend time at an airport?

Oslo Airport Gardermoen is trying to change that probable answer of “no” into a “hell, yes,” with a 43 million-square-foot city adjacent to the airport, so you could literally never have a reason to leave.

The vision for the 260-acre site known as “Airport City,” according to Travel + Leisure, includes about 11 million square feet of new buildings spanning the range of industries from hotels to cultural facilities, and amenities like swimming arenas, facilities for meetings and other business-related services, rock climbing walls, a scenic cycling path, and parachute rides — all no more than a short train ride away from the airport.

It’s an ambitious project for many reasons –least of all the unpopular sentiment toward hanging around airports, and is estimated to take 30 years to complete. [Travel + Leisure]Erin Hudson
