#1 of 9 in Trails in Oslo
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. Using our online itinerary creator, Oslo attractions like Bygdøy can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Easily accessible by line vaporetto from the port of Oslo, this peninsula is an oase of peace and green that makes us envy those lucky enough to live in one of the many beautiful houses that meet along the streets; If Berlin is home to Museums Island (Museumsinsel), Oslo has the Peninsula of Museums, because this is where the Folklore Museums, Viking Ships, Fram and Kon - Tiki are located; it is therefore necessary to plan their time well for an accurate visit of the museums themselves and more generally of the place. Of course, there are bars and restaurants, but in the general landscape the naturalistic aspects prevail: Oslo is a green city par excellence. The line steamer is also included in the Oslo Pass.

  • A small sandy beach with boat harbour. Need better facilities like changing rooms and better toilets. There was a cafe owned by yatch club association and that was closed.
  • A really amazing place where I spent almost the whole day... it might be sensible to get there with the bus (number 30 from the city centre)... I walked before along the main road to reach some of the museums... until the very end where there is the maritime museum... but then I went around and walked in the area where there is Oscarhall and from there to the complete opposite side to the small and lovely beach where the map says paradisbukta ... really lovely places throughout the peninsula... warmly adviced to anybody who likes walking and nature
