Bygdøy, Oslo

(4.8/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Jutting out into the bay, maintains a distinctly rural character while including a number of the city's museums and recreational spaces. Board a boat or bus to make your way from the central part of the city to the residential area, and go for a stroll along one of the beaches. Or rent a bicycle to take advantage of the network of surrounding pathways and trails through the parks. The museum district offers a taste of the region's history and information on some of Norway's most famous figures. You can also get a look at the residence that still serves as the summer home for the country's royal family. Work out when and for how long to visit Bygdøy and other Oslo attractions using our handy Oslo vacation trip planner.

  • Take the boat (every 20 minutes) from the City Hall and go to the Bygdøy peninsula. Museum Fram (exceptional with the FRAM ship around which is built the Museum), the Viking, the Museum of the Navy Museum... There is something for all tastes and ages. Great view of the city and the fjord. Bring your picnic and eat at the edge of the water. Calm assured.
