Bygdøy, Oslo

#1 of 226 in Trails in Norway
Biking Trail · Water Body
Jutting out into the bay, maintains a distinctly rural character while including a number of the city's museums and recreational spaces. Board a boat or bus to make your way from the central part of the city to the residential area, and go for a stroll along one of the beaches. Or rent a bicycle to take advantage of the network of surrounding pathways and trails through the parks. The museum district offers a taste of the region's history and information on some of Norway's most famous figures. You can also get a look at the residence that still serves as the summer home for the country's royal family. With our online itinerary creator, Oslo attractions like Bygdøy can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
