Oppsal was developed as a planned suburb after World War II, and the first apartment block was built in 1954. The suburb got its own church in 1961, and a shopping mall opened in 1964. Oppsal borders on the forested areas of Østmarka.
Oppsal is the hometown of the fictional detective Harry Hole, and is frequently mentioned in these thrillers. The worldwide popularity of the series has made Oppsal better known to non-Norwegians.
