  • Entrance into the Fortress is free and it takes about 1-2 hours to have a slow wander around it and take in the sights and history. There is also an exhibition inside with further information about th...  more »
  • This fortress has so much history in that it must besökes. From the war and misery to now that it is stunningly beautiful. It is allowed to walk around the fortress, but not in there lunche. But just outside the fortress wall is the law. very beautiful in the evening as it is flood lighting. The Norwegian Konglige garde has vaktavlösning at 14.00 each day in full parade.. Fun to look at, very children friendly, but our attention on the part of the fortress that is against Aker brygge. stumble one there so it is far down ... and it's free to get in there

  • A must for tourist. The german ship Blücher was sunk from here.
  • Awesome. No words to describe, describes rich heritage of Norway and it's country members.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
