Oslo Sights:

Oslo is the perfect place to visit if you are looking for amazing views, especially the fjords, parks, mountains, museums and churches. Here we have a guide to Oslo's most popular tourist sights and attractions:

Visit the National Gallery to see an impressive art collection of paintings, sketches and sculptures. It also features inspirational pieces of both international and Norwegian artists. Works of Picasso, Cezanne, Matisse and of course, Edvard Munch are on display. Munch's powerful paintings are held in several rooms. Facilities at the National Gallery include a cafe, guided tours and a shop dedicated to particular exhibitions and artists. Pre-booking for large groups is advisable.

This is the place to visit if you are a big fan of snakes, spiders, lizards and other reptiles! Feeding is worth watching and takes place on Tuesdays at 5:00 p.m. Located on Storgata 26.

Bygdøy is just a short journey from central Oslo by ferry (on the west side of Oslo). All the attractions in Bygdøy are within 10-15 minutes' walking distance of one another, including Norway's largest open-air folk museum; maritime museums and a few good beaches.

The final completion of The Royal Palace took place in 1848, by the architect Hans Ditlev Frants Linstown. It has an amazing 150-160 rooms and underwent renovation in 1991, during reigning of the current King, King Harald V. Changing of the guard takes place at 1:30 p.m each day. Tours are possible on some days through the year.

A medieval castle and fortress is a must see attraction with the unforgettable dungeons; banquet halls, staterooms and the chapel. The castle construction was started by King Håkon V Magnusson, back in 1299 and crypts of Norwegian royals, such as King Olav V and Queen Maud are here. The fortress was under attack from foreign enemies, but never captured. Still in use today, the castle is used for royal private functions and government events. The site is surrounded by park grounds, offering lovely views of the city where concerts and dances are held during summer.

Artist Gustav Vigeland (1869-1943) had created some 212 life-size sculptures, which are situated throughout the park. Split into several sections, the bronze, iron and granite pieces display the journey of life, through childhood and adolescence. The most popular pieces are the 'Sinnataggen', which translates as the 'angry little boy' and ' the wheel of Life '- symbolising eternity. Visit the Vigel Museum to see many of Gustav's pre-works, studio, models, woodcarvings, drawings, sculptures and sketches. Gifts such as postcards, mugs, pens etc. can be purchased in the souvenir shop and there is a nice little cafe serving sandwiches, cakes and coffee!

Built in 1697, the cathedral is typical of most. Inside stands a beautiful and large organ, with the pulpit and altar dating back to the early years. The stained glass windows were created by Emanuel Vigeland. Choir sessions and royal marriages have taken place here.
