Im Norwegian so I love our royal palace. I go there sometimes for different reasons, like for chilling at the park and other times for just a sightseeing mission. I would recommend everyone to go there.

We visited The Royal Palace the day before the National Day. Not very many people and one of the guards was actually very good about taking pics with us. Something to see while in Oslo.

When you get tired walking in the Oslo streets, take your rest here. You should see the front garden with all green. Oslo caddelerinde yürümek sizi yorduysa, burada dinlenin. Ön bahçedeki mükemmel yeşillikte nefes alın.

The best time of the year to visit this palace should be in summer (or late spring). The ponds were barren in early April.

We could not visit the interiors - as we visited on a Sunday. Do visit - when the Gardens are in Bloom - perhaps June-August?
