The Royal Palace in Oslo and Oscarshall at Bygdøy

The Royal Palace in Oslo is open to the public during the summer. All visitors must follow a guided tour. The season lasts from mid June – mid August. Tickets are usually available from early in March.  During the season, guided tours in Norwegian are given every day at the following times:

The tours last about one hour and begin every 20 minutes.

During the season, guided tours in English are given:  All days at 12:00, 14:00, 14:20 and 16:00


We also recommend a visit to Oscarshall, the Royal “Summer Palace”  This is a small, beautifully maintained palace on the peninsula of Bygdøy in Oslo.  During opening hours you are welcome to wander in the grounds, from the palace right down to the sea and you will find lunch or a snack at the Queen Josephine café.  However joining a guided tour is a very special experience for the palace transports visitors back to the mid 1800’s.

Oscarshall is open from 1st June to 30th August, from Wednesday to Sunday.   From 31st August to 9th September the palace is only open at weekends Friday – Sunday.
Opening hours are from 11:00 – 17:00.
