Had a day off and went for a walk to the palace. I was lucky and had a small conversation with one of the guards

Oslo's Royal Palace was built in the early 1800s on a hillside overlooking the harbor. It's fairly small, as far as palaces go. Surprisingly, visitors are allowed to walk completely around the building and practically up to the front door. Tours are offered during the summer. Plan to arrive during the changing of the guards, a low-key but interesting tradition. Then explore Slottsparken, the expansive surrounding gardens--you can picnic on the king and queen's front lawn.

The palace is on a hill over looking the center of the city. The guards outside, unlike in England, will chat with you and pose for photos.

I can recomandate the guard change. BUT if you know the guard change in London, this will be a very funny thing for you.

One of the top attractions in Oslo. I wasn't that impressed with the exterior of the building, but nonetheless a historical site with tons of history behind the palace. Walk all the way down the Main Street in Oslo and you'll hit the palace!

One of the main attractions in the city. The visit will make you understand a bit more of Norway history. Lovely palace.

Nice grounds and there always seems to be something going on there. We saw their inspection of the guard and some matching band while wandering around. What luck!

Worth seeing if only to get a picture standing next to the guard. They are happy to do this. Just don't touch them.
