  • We arrived to late to do a proper visit. We just admired the palace and walked a bit in the gardens.

  • We didn't go into the palace, (not sure if you can) but after a nice long walk up Carl Johans gate on a warm afternoon, it was nice to relax for some time in the public gardens.

  • Beautiful palace and very enthusiastic and charismatic tour staff (English and Norwegian tours offered with translation sheets for other languages). The only disappointment as a photographer is that you're not allowed to take photos or even use your phone (You have to lock it up at the door). Still a lovely experience and you are free to roam the grounds.
  • Very pretty Palace which you can see from way down the street. Huge entry way. Talked to one of the Royal guards and seem really polite and happy to answer a couple of questions. Their shift change is pretty cool too. The park surrounding the Palace is great to walk by as well
