Oscarshall


The summer palace of Oscarshall is situated on the peninsula of Bygdø, in Oslo. The palace is built on a rise, with a garden sloping down to the Oslo Fjord. It is the property of the state and placed at the disposal of the King.

I like the fact that the Palace of Oscarshall was named for King Oscar I.

Some of the ceilings have ornate detail. There are extravagant paintings on the walls of some rooms.

Big rooms for such a small palace. It reminds me of the parliament building in San Marino.

I'd never heard of Oscarshell until now but it seems to be a beautiful and intriguing palace. Norway is on my bucket list so I'll make sure to add Oscarshell to places to see in the country if I get the chance to visit one day.

HereditaryPrincess, You may not have heard of Oscarshall because it is not mentioned as much as the other Norwegian royal residences. However, it has a grandeur all of its own. You actually have to see Oscarshall in person. What words can describe its regalness?
