Trip Planner:   Europe  /  Norway  /  Eastern Norway  /  Oslo  /  Stortinget
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. To visit Stortinget and other attractions in Oslo, use our Oslo trip maker site .

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.
