    Visiting Drobak cannot exclude a ride on the island of Oscarsborg. You can get there by boat from the port of the city, on the island stands the fortress, inside which there is a very unique and interesting Museum of World War II. Around the island you will also find some nice goats ...

    Oscarsborg offers a wealth of promotions and activities. Hovedfortet is well worth a visit alone, with museum outside and inside, times and corridors, guns and torpedo battery. Here one can take on the guns that lowered the Blücher, and stand in the same place as Colonel Birger Eriksen took the famous and important decision. It offers guided tours and aktivitetsløyper. There is also a "Escape the room" which is worth a visit. Otherwise on the island is the hotel with very good food, guest harbour with kiosk and a small exhibition in the Commander Defense residence/House. Great hiking trails all around the island.

    I was really surprised, if you have the opportunity is very interesting history and is part of a tour of navigation. Not to be missed.

    It is an amazing place to spend a day to roam around an island. The fortress is on an island, well connected by boats from Sundbrygga. There is a museum inside the Oscarborg fortress which hosts several antiques from the 1940 war between Germany and Norway. There is a canteen on this island where one can enjoy meal by the water.

    Nice but rooms basic as was once an old military school. Have to pay for ferry to get there.

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.
