Cycling around the lake is prohibited due to large number of people covering this road on foot. Disabled access is good to and around the lake.

Part of the lake’s popularity stems from its easy access from Oslo; Sognsvann station, located on the south end of the lake, is the final stop on line 5 on the Oslo Metro.

Svartkulp, a small forest lake which is one of three nudist beaches in Oslo, lies a few hundred meters to the east of Sognsvann. The geographical center of Oslo municipality and county lies in the middle of this pool.
