What people are saying:

This was a great place to set out and explore early in the morning, as it offered phenomenal views of the sea and sunrise (at 10AM in the winter months, so no need to rise super early!) The fortress itself is easily accessible and simple to guide yourself through, I had researched it before my trip, so gave myself a self-guided tour to save a bit of money on my attempt at a budget-friendly trip to Norway last December. The grounds are very quiet early in the morning and it also allows you to get some stunning photos without the large crowds in all of them, so that was a bonus.

Additional Information


Built in 1299, Akershus Castle was built around the port due to strategic considerations at the time. The castle is surrounded by grassy parks and faces the azure coast, showing the stunning Nordic nature. Denmark-Norwegian King Christie IV once lived here, so there are several research-worthy rooms in the castle. The interior is gorgeous and retro, which reminds people of the unique historical charm of the Middle Ages.
