  • Interesting visit. Without any impediment you can wander around and there are guided tours to various classrooms. Located on a hill of the city it's a beautiful walk.

  • 沿著市區散步,感覺很像小型香榭大道,走到皇宮剛好看到軍隊在交接典禮,挺有趣的,但不確定是真的交接還是表演給觀眾看  more »
  • The Royal Palace in Oslo has a pretty modest. A host is a little big. There is a beautiful forest around it. Falls the shift change of the Palace Guard.

  • Stunning palace, stands at a slightly higher point and the front of the Palace itself has a beautiful view of Karl Johans street. The gardens behind the Palace were all frozen, including the lakes, providing a beautiful landscape, especially at dusk, when the lights begin to be switched on.
  • Must see! Great park where you can walk on grass, so beautiful! Fantastic on summer and great place for sledge when there is snow. Enjoy the queen's park from May 18 till end of September
  • A nice place to visit but limited things to see and do there. You should only really allow for a short time here. I can image this place is much better on an official event day as there is ample space for visitors.
  • How close you can get to the casttle just tells you how attached Norwegians are to their monarchy. It is a beautiful walk the casttle.
  • its at the end of the main shopping street. you'll see the soldiers marching here every hour. nice spot for pictures. i dont think you can go inside the palace though.
