About
Bogstad is a Manor House from the 18th Century with authenic interiors and a wonderful park. Bogstad offers activities for the whole family, and has a café, a shop and reception rooms for rent. Bogstad Manor is a listed and protected cultural monument and one of the few country estates in Norway. It holds a central position in Norwegian history, both as an industrial estate and as a centre during important periods of our political history. The history of the estate dates back to 1649, but the site was cleared and cultivated in prehistoric times. While Norway was still Catholic the land was rented out to tenant farmers by Hovedøya Monastery. After the reformatin in 1536 it was confiscated by the Crown. In 1649 the Danish-Norwegian king Fredrik III sold Bogstad and number of other farms to Morten Lauritzen. These forest holdings provided raw material for sawmills and the timber trade, both rapidly expanding enterprised in the 17th century.

The place is very easy to reach and in zone 1. The nature there is fascinating, you can take a walk around the lake, watch the nice looking houses/buildings, go to the farm and see some animals. Also there’s a cafe if you want to get some snacks.

Tired of the city? Get on a bus and go to Bogstad Gård. It’s no longer than 20 minutes away from the city center and in beautiful surroundings you can reload your energy! The kids will love the animals and there are plenty of paths to walk around the lake and on the property itself. It’s free of charge and usually very few people around, so you will feel that you got the whole place to yourself! Go for a picnic or buy an ice cream at the little cafe. Highly recommendable!

Stroll down here for a long walk, traditional farm buildings and sunday fairs. Worth a visit in the summer holidays, as more activities are on.

We went there to see any chances there is a open farm day. This farm has been there from 1700. This is old farm and maintained for heritage for the young to learn. Few buildings or rooms converted to small museum. It is big estate and lake beside golf course.

Lot´s of paintings on the wall, beautiful porcelain, and other exclusive things.
Antique furniture and large paintings with an interesting story.

Bogstad Gard may not be the most known Oslo's attraction, but it is a very nice place to visit, even though it is a bit outside the main tourist routes. It is not an ordinary tourist place,but it has a few centuries worth of farming,

This visit became one of our favorite places in Norway. Beautiful setting with many locations for photographs and just to spend a few quiet moments away from the city. Tour guides were enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We visited on a cloudy day (not unusual for Oslo) and despite that it was fantastic. It's just a little out of the city so try and bookmark it as a spot to visit and spend an afternoon.

Not a bad site. Good facilities with a clean Kro, service station and supermarket attached. Bus stop direct to the city and beside a beautiful Lake with swimming spots and picnic area.

Went there on a sunday fair. Visited the museum on a guided tour . It was nice but a small place showing the Anker family history. The best part was the dance show at the ball room. The elderly people involved did really well. Opposite to the museum, there is a barn with sheep, chickens and pigs. The main attraction of farm is the lakeside meadow with many sitting options by the lake. You can spend a lot of time just sitting there enjoying the Bogstad lake and nearby golf course.
It cost NOK 70 to get in to the museum. Nice place for kids.
