One of most delightful, romantic two-wheel rides in Oslo. Lush woods, park-like countryside, view of the sea, swimming areas, historic buildings and the royal cows are some of the sights to see along the way. Arrive from Aker Brygge via the 3-km cycle route along Frognerstranda to Hengesengveien, Bygdoy. Continue to Holsts vei - Rideveien - Huk - P.T. Mallingsvei - Langviksvei - Huk Aveny - Museumsveien - Wedels vei - Dronning Biancas vei Distance: 7 km Incline: insignificant Roadway: primarily fine gravel roads

must-see!

Everything there is worth watching and Folk Museum is the most impressive. I recommend going there by ferry.

Get your Oslo pass & ferry over. 5 museums to see. Plan on 4 to 6 hours at least. Start at Cultural museum, then Viking and on to Fram, Maritime & KonTiki. Could easily hane spent two days

The trip to Bygdoy is totally worth it. We went without a real plan, just to get on a ferry and see the surrounding area, and perhaps check out some of the museums. Beautiful 10 minute ferry ride gets you to a beautiful area of local old homes and new mansions. Nice walk to most attractions listed on the peninsula.... More

Lunched out side and watched the boats go by, only walked up to Viking museum so didn't visit any here, but great little park area to catch your breath.

In the summer you can take a ferry across to Bygdoy (about 15 minutes) and see all the museums they have to offer like the Viking Ship, Folk Museum (big outdoor Museum, could take a half day for this one), Holocaust, Fram, Kon Tiki. It is small enough to walk to all of these and the peninsula is so charming... More

If you want to enjoy several of the great museums Oslo has to offer, be sure to visit Bygdoy. We took the ferry over and got off at the first of two stops. It was an easy walk to the Folkmuseum, and then to the Viking Ships Museum. We took a bit of a longer walk to the Kon Tiki... More

You can easily spend a full day at all the museums in Bygdoy located within walking distance of each other. The water taxi leaves from the main harbor. The boat and all the museums are free with the Oslo card. You can get off the boat at the first stop in Bygdoy, walk a few blocks to the nearest museums... More

We took the ferry over to Bygdoy Peninsula to visit the Viking Museum. We enjoyed the walk from the pier to the museum, commenting on the neighborhoods, homes and views of the water. Although the traffic may be annoying to residents, as many, many tourists are visiting the museums, I would imagine this is a very pleasant area of Oslo... More

If you are interested in history and have but a little time to spend in Oslo, Bygdoy is the place to be. From the Vikingship museum, going back more than a 1000 years, walking through the Folkmuseum and experience how the Norwegians lived and worked through the centuries, to some of the great explorers, Thor Heyerdahl og Kon-Tiki raft fame,...

Ferry or bus makes an easy trip from Central Oslo to what feels like a comfortable suburb with many green areas but which has a plethora of museums,all excellent, and some great waterside locations to stop a while. Just enjoy at whatever pace suits!
