Guided tours of the Royal Palace
The Royal Palace in Oslo is open to the public from 22 June until 25 August. All visitors follow a guided tour through some of the most important and beautiful rooms.
The exhibition "Where Queens Meet" is part of the tour this year. Through the display of clothing and objects we meet Queen Sonja and Queen Maud in some of the most beautiful rooms in the Royal Palace: by the Palace Balcony, for afternoon tea in the Mirror Hall, at a grand Palace ball in the Great Hall, and at a table laid for Norway’s first ladies, past and present, in the Banqueting Hall.
