Once more we take the ferry to Oslo, this time however we keep to the eastern districts. 

Durch den Hafen nach Akershus

Our first object is Akershus Castle.

Akershus am Hafen von Oslo

Within the past centuries Oslo was more than once burnt, sacked and again burnt and sacked.

Akershus

At the end of the 13th century Akerhus Castle was built. 

Akershus

After further burning and sacking the castle went to ruins. Only in 1720 it was completely restored.

Akershus

It has been worth the effort!

Osloer Straßenbahn

By and by the rain ceases and we discover old Oslo, also called Gamle Oslo.

Kathedrale Oslo

The impressive organ in the cathedral. It has more than 4,000 pipes. Not so easy to say "Pipe down!" As usual, also this cathedral had been burnt down. 

Kathedrale Oslo

In 1694 this cathedral was newly built. By the way, in August 1968 the wedding of crown prince and later king Harald V and Sonja Haraldsen took place here. 

 

Polizistin mit Pferd

A charming (un)mounted policewoman on the mall.

Karl Johans Gate vorm Schloss

Along the 'Karl Johans Gate' we proceed towards the castle. This is the most interesting street of Oslo.

Karl Johans Gate

The best place to spend your holiday money...

Schloss von Oslo

After several interruptions this King's Castle was only finished in 1836. Only receptions are taking place here.

Sitz der Friedensnobelpreisverleihung

This is Vestbanestasjonen, a former train station, seat of the Nobel Peace Centre.

 

Kogge

After hours our feet are sore. So back to the harbour.

Bygdol

Making for the lodging and relax. Tomorrow will be exhausting.
