  • It's a stop when you are in Oslo but not an especially noteworthy one as it is really nothing special. Other countries maintain the garden of their royalties much better.

  • This is a working palace and it was captivating to watch a dignitary motorcade leave the palace under tight security and be escorted to the Villa behind the palace. The grounds are breathtaking. And you are allowed to stroll at your leisure. Many schoolchildren and running clubs were using the grounds. In all a happy place to be! Recommend you stroll through and enjoy the works.
  • Royal palace is one of the main attractions in the city of Oslo. I visited this by getting into city sightseeing bus which took me to other places too. This is a nice ancient building constructed in aesthetically very attractive. From this place you many get almost whole and beautiful view of the Karl Johan gate leading towards Norwegian Parliament. A nice place overall
