Historic Oslo with City Hall
This short, but very informative half-day excursion is not only perfect but concise for those who are only in Oslo for a few hours yet want an introduction to the local history and culture.
Your excursion will be conducted in a smaller, intimate size group giving more personal attention and will take you to Dome Cathedral, a medieval cathedral with a restored original Baroque interior that is used by the Royal Family and Norwegian government for public events. The present building dates from 1694-1697 and in 2001 was used for the wedding of the Crown Prince of Norway.
You will also view the Karl Johan's Gate, the main street in Oslo that is filled with trendy shops, mouthwatering restaurants and popular tourist attractions including the Royal Palace, Central Station and the National Theater. This street is a composite of several separated older streets and is 1,020 meters long. Stop for a coffee or tea (included) and have the opportunity to purchase different local sweets and other products.
Oslo's impressive City Hall is the ceremonial location of the Nobel Peace Prize, and greets you with colorful motifs of Norwegian history, culture and local life. Don't leave without getting up close and personal with the Akershus medieval castle and grab a photo or two of this grand 13th century fortress as well as the views from its strategic location on the Aker River.
