very pretty to look at from the outside, just like the rest of the city!
Around the palace are 330 acres of woodland and parks, which pass through the public avenues leading to the downtown commercial district. The palace was originally built by King Karl XIV. In 1823, a Danish official and lawyer, Von Lindsworth, was appointed chief architect and laid the foundation in 1825.
The last day in Norway was in Oslo, visiting the harbour, city hall, art gallery in the morning just in time for the Oslo marathon, the athletes were all in high spirits and the audience was very much cheering for each athlete. The weather was very good, a change from the rainy weather in the fjord a few days before.
I'm not sure the name is right, but it's good view
I can recomandate the guard change. BUT if you know the guard change in London, this will be a very funny thing for you.
Oslo's Royal Palace was built in the early 1800s on a hillside overlooking the harbor. It's fairly small, as far as palaces go. Surprisingly, visitors are allowed to walk completely around the building and practically up to the front door. Tours are offered during the summer. Plan to arrive during the changing of the guards, a low-key but interesting tradition. Then explore Slottsparken, the expansive surrounding gardens--you can picnic on the king and queen's front lawn.
The palace is on a hill over looking the center of the city. The guards outside, unlike in England, will chat with you and pose for photos.
