Stortinget, Oslo
(4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Gain insight into Norwegian history, politics, and struggle for independence on a guided tour of Stortinget. Designed both inside and out by the Swedish architect Emil Victor Langlet and designated for parliament in 1866, the building has influences of French and Italian architecture. Most notably, the plenary chamber sits in the semi-circular part of the building rather than at the center. Guided tours cannot be booked in advance, so arrive 30 to 45 minutes early to guarantee your spot.

  • Beautiful Parliament building in Central Oslo. Unusual architecture, the building complex shape. Central oval part sets the tone for all construction. Is a park in front of the Parliament, green lawns, many benches. Near the lively city centre with its shops, restaurants.
