Akershus Castle

Experience history dating all the way back to 1300

Dating from 1299, this medieval castle and royal residence developed into a fortress in 1592 and was rebuilt into a renaissance castle between 1637 and 1648.

Akershus Castle today contains banquet halls, the Royal Mausoleum and the government's reception rooms, and its small, historic church is the home of the royal sarcophagi.
