Bygdøy is about as close as Norwegians get to having a local beach experience. Don't come here expecting miles of white sand and palm trees - you're in Norway, remember. Swimming at Bygdøy feels like being on the set of an art house film. There are pine and cedar trees surrounding a small rocky beach entry. There are some places... More

You can travel here by car or bus and also by public ferry service, which is my favourite way. There are many attractions on the peninsula, including the Viking Ships and the Folk Museum. There is also a nice park with a small beach. The housing is at the top end of the market and there are many trees and... More

If you are taking the ferry from Oslo Harbour the first stop is in a residential area, and the second stop is the Museum precinct. If you are going at lunchtime there is a nice restaurant on the Quai at the first stop. Then hop onto the ferry again to visit the Museum precinct (The Fram, Viking Ships, Kon- tiki... More

Calm island, full of parks, museums, tourist attractions and even places made for seawater swimming. Though most of the peninsula is private and one can't access all those good localities.

If it's summer don't forget your swim wear. At this area you'll find some interesting museums too. Definitely worth spending some time. It's possible to take city busses.

I almost skipped the Bygdoy Peninsula since the ferry seemed like a hassle, but I really wanted to see the Viking Ship Museum so I ended up going and I'm so glad I did! Strolling around the Peninsula is a great way to spend an afternoon. The homes there are just gorgeous and there are lots of great cultural attractions.... More

This is a residential area of Oslo which also encompasses several museums. We had the Oslo Pass and got round 4 museums in a day, getting there by the number 30 bus which goes from National Theatre, passing the Ibsen Museum, which we'd seen the previous day) and eventually stops at the Kon-Tiki Museum (especially interesting for me as I...

My daughter and I had an interesting, fun day visiting 3 of the museums - the Folk Museum (don't miss the stave church), the Kon-Tiki museum (holds the actual vessel!) and the Viking ship museum (beautiful and mysterious). Lots of walking, especially at the Folk Museum and between some of them. The ferry ride over and back was a fun... More
