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 .

  • Go for a guided tour if you want! Otherwise, you can only admire the parliament from outside the fence.  more »
  • It is easy to reach, is located in karl Johans gate (pedestrian street in the Centre of Oslo) opposite a park, meeting point in spring and summer and has track skating in winter. The building is of 1866 and you can visit it is free. Guided tours are in English and Norwegian. From January to June / September-December: Saturday and June-August: Monday to Friday. Schedules can be seen on the web. Very good.
