I visited the port from where we go on short cruises on the fjord, to the nearby islands of the fjord with regular waterbus lines or to the Bygdoy peninsula. It 's located in Radhuspladssen square. There are various tourist boats, smaller or larger and even a few small fishing boats that sell their catch in the early hours of the morning. Pretty nice ...

With my friends, we enjoyed that Scandinavian landscape and we imagine the hordes of Vikings that flow the world from here...

The port is well located--a 10 min walk to the main shopping and restaurant area with lots of other sights to see.

- a city map was available at the information center when we left the ship, outside the port fenceline. It was a good map, well labeled.
- The city has really good public transportation system
- there is a hop on hop off bus at the port
- the ship docks next to a nice fort with free access to the public. Lots of hills at the fort and it is very well maintained. If you want to see the castle at the fort there is a fee to enter it. The name is Akershus fortress.
- the port is about 1 mile from the Palace and Palace Park. The park has open access to the public and has nice gardens, ponds and park pathways. The palace is picturesque too.
- the port was about 2 miles from the famous sculpture park, but park is another mile or so of walking to see the main attractions. The sculpture park also has several other areas with things to walk, see or do, so take that into account before deciding to walk to/from it. The hop on hop off bus and city buses go to this attraction too. Be advised, the statues are nude, but that is explained in the rationale of the artist when the exhibit was created. However, if you do not wish to view this type of art, then the expansive statue area is not the area for you.
- also near the port, but in the other direction from the palace is the opera house with a majestic view of the harbor

In all, Oslo had a lot to see in a day from the cruise ship without needing a lot of prior planning.

If you like wooden ships and the Harbour this is the place easy walk from the main city center. Depending on the weather you could easily spend an hour os walking around.

One could say that the port is the whole soulth of Oslo. There are many kind of ships to see here. There are for example ships for the international transport, cruisers here. You can also see fishermen. One day I saw the cruise ship from Panama. Interesting place for people from the inland.

Near the cruise terminal and below the large fortress/castle on hill. Modern, wide open area. Very busy area, people walking, bikes, boats coming in. Lots of great places for photo's, nice place to hang out. Definitely worth a visit and walk about.

The Port of Oslo has four cruise quays: Søndre Akershus, Filipstad, Vippetangen and Revierkaia.

And two ferry quays: Hjortneskaia for Color Line and Utstikker 2 for Stena Line and DFDS.

So be careful to go to the right quay.
