very pretty to look at from the outside, just like the rest of the city!
I can recomandate the guard change. BUT if you know the guard change in London, this will be a very funny thing for you.
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.
Was not that impressed, would like to go inside, can you? But a nice park.
One of the main attractions in the city. The visit will make you understand a bit more of Norway history. Lovely palace.
Worth seeing if only to get a picture standing next to the guard. They are happy to do this. Just don't touch them.
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.
I'm not sure the name is right, but it's good view
