I think one can have a beautiful day here. First buy an Oslo Pass so everything is included, even the ferry boat round trip. I would recommend to start before 9 a.m.The ferry is easy to find at pier 3, just behind the City Hall building, and it has two stops on the peninsula. Hop off the first stop and... More

We travelled by boat and then walked through the roads. Splendid houses. Peaceful. Museums are worth to be seen.

Several museums located on the peninsular. Nice boat or bus trip to get there. Great place for a swim in the fjord, a run, rude or walk on the trails or BBQ at the beach

Go with a guide and learn about the properties on the way to the museums. Great to just sit and watch the sea traffic. Recommend the pancakes

There is a lot to see on the Bygdøy peninsula. Best way to get here is by the 91 Ferry which leave from Radhuset Pier 3 in Oslo. The crossing takes 15 minutes. If you love ships you will be spoilt for choice with the number and quality of museums available to visit. If you have an Oslo Pass you... More

Once you get away from the main road there are small paths criss-crossing the big farm, forest and seaside area. Oslo is surrounded by the forest, so this area is not unique, but it is pleasant and reasonably close to the city centre. Just bear in mind that the museum area is on the other side of the Bygdøy peninsula.

This place is lovely for its beautiful views and friendly service people. They were willing to answer questions for tourists, and it's a great place to enjoy views of the Oslo fjord!
