Karl Johans gate, Oslo

(3.4/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
At Karl Johans gate, walk down Oslo's main street while passing by some of the city's most popular tourist attractions. Named after King Charles III John upon his death, the street was once multiple roads that have now merged into one, leading you from from Oslo Central Station all the way to the Royal Palace. Along the way, stop by the National Theatre, the Palace Park, the Oslo Cathedral, the Bazaar Market, and the historic Fire Watch building, which served as the city's central fire station from 1860 to 1939. Shop or eat at one of the many restaurants and boutiques that line the street. Our Oslo vacation builder makes visiting Karl Johans gate and other Oslo attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Great place to stroll and shop in the Centre of Oslo. I passed quickly for her when I moved from one location to another meeting, but gave it to see that it is a place with great tourist appeal.

  • The hotel was there, and we got the best photos at sunset. Walk all the way to the end of the road and take your photos from there for the best shots!  more »
  • Looks more like a town main road than a capital one. Yes, a few shops but nothing very impressive as you would expect.  more »
