Trips With Kids

Karl Johans Gate

After an intense morning, where we visited the museums located on the Bygdøy peninsula  we headed toward the city, specifically decided to visit the most famous street of Oslo – Karl Johans Gate.

Street connects the building of the Royal Palace (Slottet) to the train station (Jernbanestasjon). The whole street is a huge pedestrian area, and it is surrounded by historic buildings such as the National Theatre, the Parliament (Stortinget), National Gallery (Nasjonalgalleriet) and University. The street is noisy and lively.

The trip we are starting at the Royal Palace, located on an elevation, from where we can view whole city center. First stage of the road near the palace is a gravel road with small pebbles. In the front of the Royal Palace there are guard soldiers. The castle can not be visited by tourists.


In the front of Royal Palace we found monument of Charles John III who rides a horse.

We come to the Spikersuppa park with the fountain in the middle. In the winter there is skating rink organized here.


Along the street there are plenty of benches, cafes and restaurants. We can find well known fastfood shops. Prices for Norway – common hamburger for about 140 NOK or 70 PLN.

There are also some souvenir shops. In the shops of trolls 🙂


We also invite you to watch video from our walk along Karl Johans Gate:
