Along the way, stop by the National Theatre, the Palace Park, the Oslo Cathedral, the Bazaar Market, and the historic Fire Watch building, which served as the city's central fire station from 1860 to 1939. Shop or eat at one of the many restaurants and boutiques that line the street. PutKarl Johans gate into our Oslo visit app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • We arrived late in the day. We enjoyed the shops while they were still open. Most closed at 6 pm. There are a lot of interesting buildings. It was nice to see the palace as you walked the street.
