One Amazing Day in Oslo

Discover all must-see places in Oslo in just one day. This itinerary will take you on a great trip through the town.

Start off your day in the Fram Museum. The museum honors Norwegian polar exploration and it also holds an intact boat named Fram, which is the central point of the museum and which will take your breath way. Then, hop on a ferry (91) or catch a bus (30) to get into the city center. Walk past the City Hall and head straight to the Akershus Castle, a medieval castle and a fortress, which was built in order to protect the capital by King Haakon V. Part of the castle was turned into a museum.

Next, go see Oslo Opera House, an imposing modern building which became a symbol of the city. Stroll Karl Johans Gate, the main boulevard of the city, and do not forget to look up at the marvelous historical buildings that line the avenue, such as Oslo Cathedral and Parliament of Norway.

Next stop is the Trinity Church. This Neo-Gothic gem is regarded as one of the most wonderful churches in the city, so it is definitely worth the visit. Then, stroll the gardens at the Royal Palace and finish your trip in the Vigeland Museum, a unique museum and a sculpture park dedicated to the work of just one man: Gustav Vigeland. Walking around the park and admiring Vigeland's masterpieces is a nice way to end your day.
