Overview

The Palace Park, one of the Norwegian capital’s first and largest parks, surrounds the Royal Palace on all sides. It features grassy areas and flowerbeds as well as old, majestic trees. It is a popular place to rest - with tourists and the city's own populations both. The Palace Park was developed simultaneously with the construction of the Royal Palace in the mid-1800s. The part of the park called the Queen’s Park dates all the way back to 1751.Most of the park is open to the public all year. The Queen's Park is open during the summe season, from 18 May to 1 October, between 7 AM and 8 PM. The Palace Park is a protected cultural monument and is managed by the Palace gardeners.

Lovely walk around the park behind the palace. Nice little pond and bridge area which is cool for photos. You could definitely have a little picnic and people lay out to sunbath in spots as well.

The palace gardens were beautiful and had a lot of colour when we visited recently. It's an ideal spot for a stroll or even a picnic.

Visited here as part of a walking tour and it was lovely. Admittedly it was a lovely sunny May day. Lots of space to walk and relax and have a picnic, a lovely thing to do on a nice day

Nothing to see in the palace park before spring. Palace is worth a look though. Plan to return in the spring or summer when everything should look a little less grey.

The Park wasn't far from our hotel, and we would regularly take some time in the park on our to and from the hotel. If you're travelling with kids, finding green space to let them run off some steam is a must. The lovely thing...More

Hi, My best guess would be around 1,5 kilometers from the main cruise terminal by Akershus fortress. Best wishes, Liv Osmundsen - Webeditor at the Royal Palace
