Full description
Oslo is more than 1000 years old, and its history is filled with horrifying stories, ranging from the time of the vikings to bloody battles between neighboring countries.

Discover the old Royal palace that became a recognizable symbol of the city. As you walk around the fortress, your expert guide will show you a different, dark side of buildings and squares – in rich, engaging detail.

The route of this 2-hour walk allows you to see all the main attractions of the very center of Norwegian capital. You'll start at the City Hall, visit Akershus fortress, walk in the oldest part of the 17th century city Kvadraturen and finish on the main street Karl Johan where you will see the Parliament, the National Theater, the University, the Royal Palace, and the Grand Café.
