Stortinget, Oslo

(4/5 based on 300+ 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. Using our online itinerary creator, Oslo attractions like Stortinget can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • On the other side of the street directly opposite the Royal Palace situated in Norway Parliament building caught our attention with interesting architecture. Have the lion statues in front of it. Walk down to the beach here is beautiful.

  • The Norwegian legislature, the Storting, declared independence from Sweden on 7 June 1905, which was achieved without bloodshed.
  • You can really feel the touch of Norwegian culture on its structure. A good place to visit and to find more about Norwegian culture.
  • There is just something about this building if you can do the tour do that you will learn a lot..
  • One of the best attractions of Oslo, is the Storting (the Great Council, Parliament) building. The building has an interesting facade.Take a guided tour to learn a lot about the building and Norway's politics. Most recommended.
  • Very beautiful building. The architecture is very different from all what exists in Oslo.
