When you start your walk in Karl Johansen street there are a lot of attractions close by: Parliament, Church and Royal Palace. I just looked from outside and did not go in as it was on a Sunday.

When you are in Oslo, its not a bad idea to take a free guided tour of this place. The place has a mix of French and Italian styles of architecture along-with Norwegian architecture. I would not recommend the tour for visitors interested in history and politics.

The Norwegian parliament building is a very nice castle-like structure in the city centre. It is by Karl Johans gate and admission is free should you wish to tour the building.

Only got a chance to view the Norwegian Parliament building from the outside but appreciated the beauty of the building. I must admit it seemed to be too beautiful for politicians though.

Go with a tour to get the best chance of getting in. We didn't make it inside but still had a wonderful experience because this building is in close proximity to many other experiences like the university, the Royal Palace, and a great walking street.

This is an impressive building where the Norwegian Parliament meets. The parliament is a single chamber of a little over 125 people.
