This is what is written on my grammar: Til: ownership/belonging (sønnen til Peter) På: part of a whole (halen på hunden), attributes (fargen på huset), 'the person in charge' of a specific entry, usually corresponding to 'of' (sjåforen på bussen) but for this category you can use 'i' too (kongen i Norge)

Very clarifying. Is that from a book or something?

Yep, it's "Norwegian, An Essential Grammar" written by Åse-Berit and Rolf Strandskogen
