  • You have the opportunity to go to Oscar's fortress a hot nice summer day so make it. you go there with color from either Oslo or from Dröback. There is a museum on the island or just themselves, wander around to read on a little signs what it is. See restaurant plus a small kiosk selling ice cream and sausage.

  • When visiting this space I loved the view of the city, a sort of viewpoint over the Harbour and the lower part of the city.

  • Fantastic site out there. Include picknikkurven and have fun before you go into the borregården for an operetta. Here is the atmosphere

  • We was there on a more crowded summer Saturday in August due to some festival. We enjoyed to stroll around and also try the bow/arrow shooting, face paint etc for kids. Nice place for a picnic. Friendly staff. Some goats there for kids to pet. Museum a bit boring and dated.
  • Awesome. No words to describe, describes rich heritage of Norway and it's country members.
  • Cool historical site, not a lot of historic info about the place unless you look it up on your own. Fun to walk around and explore the island and pet the goats.
  • 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.
  • We arrived on the island with a public boat from oslo. We wanted to visit the island and then take the smaller boat to drøbak but we could only by return tickets to drøbak which cost 240 nok per family even though we only needed a direct ticket (they don't sell it anymore....).

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.
