Bygdøy, Oslo

4.8
#1 of 6 in Trails in Oslo
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.

    The obvious reason to visit the Peninsula is the museums. They are worth the visit. But don't forget to walk around - get off at the first ferry stop and visit the Viking Ship and other museums closes...  more »

    Bygdøy is a must-see for visitors to Oslo; this peninsula is a short ferry ride away from Oslo harbor & is worth spending an entire day on if you have the time. There are several museums on the penins...  more »

Where to stay in Oslo

A majority of Oslo's hotels and smaller accommodations cluster along Karl Johans Gate, the city's main drag connecting many of its downtown attractions. If you want something a bit more colorful than the average hotel, consider one of the many bed and breakfasts that have been cropping up in recent years. To escape the crowded streets, but still be walking distance from major sights, stay in the Frogner or Majorstuen neighborhoods near the royal palace. As you can probably guess, lodging is quite expensive in this European capital.
