Guided tours of the Royal Palace

The Royal Palace in Oslo is open to the public during the summer, from late June until the middle of August, with tickets available from about 1 March the same year.

The Royal Palace is open to visitors during the summer. In 2024 the season is from 22 June until 18 August.

A guided tour 

All visitors must follow a guided tour. Tours are usually given in Norwegian every 20 minutes. There are also several tours in English given every day. The tour takes the visitors through some of the most beautiful state rooms in the Royal Palace. 

Rooms on the tour

The guided tour takes visitors through some of the most important and lovely rooms. We visit the Bird Room where all those seeking an audience with His Majesty The King wait to be announced, as well as the Ballroom and the Banqueting Hall. During a gala dinner at the Royal Palace, more than 200 people will dine there.

In 2022 the White Parlour was included in the guided tour for the first time, and was a new high point. The room itself and its interior were completely renovated during the pandemic, and the room has now been restored to its original appearance when the Palace was completed in 1849, when it was used as Queen Joséphine’s audience chamber.
