There are quite a few applications that can use OSM data for a variety of platforms (from simple phone navigation apps to full-blown GIS software). Some more detail of what you want to do would be helpful in narrowing down the options.

Thanks @InsertUser,

I have a gml file with points and lines. I want to show the objects (points and lines) for analyzing purposes. I'm the only user for that.

The gml data should not be stored anywhere.

Warm regards,

You will need to build yourself something local with or if you want to use raster map tiles.

Or you can use vector tiles (which you could store locally) with or mapbox-gl.

As you mention analysis in your follow-up comment I think it is worth mentioning that QGIS can display OSM tiles and import OpenStreetMap data for further processing.

While QGIS does use a graphical interface it can be quite a bewildering program to get started with and depending on your actual usage may well be "using a sledgehammer to crack a nut".
