Akershus Fortress Overview
Set on the banks of Oslo Fjord, Akershus Castle (Akershus Slott) or Akershus Fortress was constructed in 1299 as a home for Norway's imperial family and is a must to explore the location in the list of places to see in Oslo Norway.

Throughout the long term, it has filled in as a post to shield Oslo against attacks from rival Swedish powers, as a Renaissance palace, and as an undeniable nineteenth-century jail.
Inside the palace, important relics outline the design's celebrated history and offer a brief look into Norway's archaic and Renaissance past.

Today Akershus Fortress is the base camp for Norway's Ministry of Defense and home to the Norwegian Armed Forces Museum and Norway's Resistance Museum. Segway and bicycle visits are a decent method to see the palace.
