Add To Plan

Departing the pier, walk approximately 15 minutes to Akershus Castle, located near the Akershus Cruise pier. Upon arrival, begin a guided visit of the castle's interior. Admire the beautifully restored halls, marvel at the gloomy dungeons and travel down dark hallways. Your guide will provide commentary throughout your visit, detailing the historical presence of Håkon V Queen Margrethe, Christian IV, the Norwegian poet HenrikWergeland and other fascinating former visitors.

Continue to the Resistance Museum, which adjoins a memorial to the Norwegian patriots who were executed by the Germans during World War II. During your visit, you will see objects, pictures, printed materials and exhibitions detailing life in Oslo while under foreign rule.

After your look into this interesting history, walk back to your ship.
