Overview

The Palace Park, one of the Norwegian capital’s first and largest parks, surrounds the Royal Palace on all sides. It features grassy areas and flowerbeds as well as old, majestic trees. It is a popular place to rest - with tourists and the city's own populations both. The Palace Park was developed simultaneously with the construction of the Royal Palace in the mid-1800s. The part of the park called the Queen’s Park dates all the way back to 1751.Most of the park is open to the public all year. The Queen's Park is open during the summe season, from 18 May to 1 October, between 7 AM and 8 PM. The Palace Park is a protected cultural monument and is managed by the Palace gardeners.

We walked from our hotel up Karl Johan Gate to the Royal Palace which imposes itself on top of the hill. The gardens are quite nice but not particularly well maintained with weeds and longer grass detracting from what you would normally expect Having said...More

Lovely walk around the park behind the palace. Nice little pond and bridge area which is cool for photos. You could definitely have a little picnic and people lay out to sunbath in spots as well.

The palace gardens were beautiful and had a lot of colour when we visited recently. It's an ideal spot for a stroll or even a picnic.

Hi, My best guess would be around 1,5 kilometers from the main cruise terminal by Akershus fortress. Best wishes, Liv Osmundsen - Webeditor at the Royal Palace
