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

This was one of the best museums on Viking ship finds. There are 3 ships you can see, an excellent film and quite a few artifacts from the burial sites of Oseberg, Tune and Gokstad. If you are interested in the Vikings this museum will...More

We came here for the museums but walked around a bit. The neighborhood has some interesting houses. Very quiet place, tons of museums but not much else. The harbor where the ferry docks has a small beach and a nice place where you can sit...More

We went to this place, but found it beautiful but extremely quiet and nothing much to do, except see the water and the boats. Nothing spectacular

I spent an entire day here. The museums are excellent. Almost all have nautical themes, but you don't have to be interested in nautical things to get into them. I would highly recommend buying an Oslo pass. First, it covers the ferry ride over. Second,...More

When visiting Oslo, don't miss spending a day at the Bygdoy Peninsula, and be sure to take the ferry. There are 5 very interesting Museums, it's a lovely place to picnic and enjoy the sun.

Beautiful houses and quaint environment. This is where the museums are located. We did not take the ferry here because of time and the hike up. Bus #30 brought us here from near the City Hall. Very convenient.

There are the occasional villas for rent, but only long term. There are no hotels in Bygdoy. However, the bus nr 30 from downtown Oslo only takes 15-20 minutes to reach all the museums, of which there are many exiting ones... More

There are two ways to reach Bygdoy - (it is part of Oslo, and not far from the city centre) A short and fairly frequent passenger ferry from the pair in front of City Hall is one, the number 30 bus is the other, which runs... More
