FamilyExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Check the schedule for the English language guided tours.
  • The Akershus Slott (castle) along with the Akershus Festning(fortress) were constructed in 1300 as a royal fort and residence to protect Oslo when it became Norway's capital. The structures, rebuilt and enlarged over the centuries, serve as city icons.
  • The fortress museum details the structure's history and the castle guided tour leads you through state rooms, banquet halls, and into the bleak dungeons.
