The Palace Park is a public park in the center of Oslo, Norway, surrounding the Royal Palace. It is.HistoryIt was built during the 1840s and was designed by Hans Ditlev Franciscus Linstow, who was the main architect of the palace. Two thousand trees were planted in 1848, but since then the park has been redeveloped several times, becoming simpler with larger but fewer paths and fewer creeks.

  • Small, fairly intimate, quiet and calm and a secluded little gem which is located behind the Castle. Now also with the new statue of the Queen.

  • The royal palace and the park are a nice attraction to visit on a sunny day. When one is there at the right time it is nice to see the changing of the guards.  more »

  • Nice view of the city center from the top of the hill by the Karl Johan statue. If you only have one day in Oslo, it might not be worth using your time to walk all the way up to the palace. The surrounding park is nice for a shady stroll.
  • Our national castle. Great view on Oslo's parade street Karl Johan. His Majesty's guard is interesting to watch. Big park with statues and flowers.
  • Free entry. Changing of the guards. Nice gardens surrounding the palace.
  • We were right on time to see the new statue of Norwegian Queen because of her Royalty Higness 80th birthday.
  • Very nice place to visit. On sunny day it looks stunning.

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.
