Gain insight into Norwegian history, politics, and struggle for independence on a guided tour of Stortinget. Designed both inside and out by the Swedish architect Emil Victor Langlet and designated for parliament in 1866, the building has influences of French and Italian architecture. Most notably, the plenary chamber sits in the semi-circular part of the building rather than at the center. Guided tours cannot be booked in advance, so arrive 30 to 45 minutes early to guarantee your spot. To visit Stortinget and other attractions in Oslo, use our Oslo trip maker site .
Tours to Stortinget
This is the place of power in Norway. It's very nice to take a tour here, to get a history lecture, and to see how the government in Norway works. I would very much recommend a visit here. more »
Next to a park, very nice place to look around, we didn't go inside, only saw it from the outside. Worth a visit. more »
The national parliament is a beautiful building
Nice and clean, although not always easy to find station.
