    Beginning with the indoor exhibits was interesting, seeing timelines and interiors of houses from various periods.

    A superb collection of houses and other buildings has been assembled, representing different centuries and many parts of the country.

    Wooden assemblages are remarkable. The craft involved in making, in the first place, and then preserving them, particularly given the winter severity, is impressive.

    A beautiful stave church is a treasure. Originating around 1200 it is magnificent in its complexity.

    Free entrance to a very interesting fortress. The Visitor Center is very good. The Resistance Museum has a charge. The views from the ramparts are spectacular. I wish we could have gone into the actual castle.

    A massive building, with simple architecture, with straight lines and without many decorative elements. The red brick facades gives it a sad look. The interior, which can be visited for free, is quite impressive. There are some beautifully decorated halls.

    I was raised in Oslo and have lived there many years. When I go back to visit my country now, I can't skip a tour or five.... on ski or foot at Frognerseteren....

    This is an imposing building set in its own park land, worth seeing. We visited whilst heading to the sculpture park to see the statues.

    A central street in Oslo. Some important landmarks can be found along it, starting with the Royal Palace, the University, the National Theater, the Parliament and Oslo Cathedral. It ends (or starts...) in the square in front of the Oslo Central railway station.
    Also, there are scores of all kind of shops, restaurants. Pretty crowded.

    Cozy city to visit. Regarded as the "christmas city". Has a nice beach if you want to escape the bustle of Oslo in the summer.

    The harbour is a nice day is just lovely. It is great to stroll around with plenty of restaurants. It's great with the castle and fort one side and brand new National Museum and he Nobel Peace Museum on the other side.

    A deeply moving memorial to the victims of the 22nd July attack both at the government offices and at the youth camp at the island. It's not the easiest of places to visit (or find!) as it's very moving and challenging but it's worthwhile and important. The stories of both survivors and victims are offered, along with the facts and details of the event as it unfolded, and an analysis of the background and the Norwegian response (overwhelmingly in the spirit of reconcilation and peace). An immense thanks to all those that contributed to the memorial and those that run the centre. Leave plenty of time to view everything, reflect and speak to the centre staff.

    When you arrive at church sit down and look in peace around you. The frescoes on the ceiling are stunning, the pulpit is incredibly decorative and the altar painting is not a painting.

    I was lucky enough to come to church on Saturday morning when the cantor played the organ. It made the visit perfect.

    Filled with cafes, restaurants and small shops, including vintage shops, a very nice area to walk around.

    The garden outside the building hosted an event in solidarity with the Palestinian people memorizing the courage of the Palestinian journalist Sherine Abu-Aklah who was killed in the field during a live coverage few days ago

    Passing a couple of waterfalls on our walk along the grand river, this is the highest and most impressive.

    A fine effervescence is produced with copious white spray as it thunders along.

    This is not a district that overwhelms the visitor. It is unique architecture and an integration of business structures with unique designs within a larger district with apartment buildings of less distinction. We were impressed.

    Do take the bridge over the railroad tracks as part of your visit to this district.
