A walk through historical and modern Oslo, starting with the medieval castle of Akershus, walking through the old and new centre of town past the town hall, down the main street with the royal castle, the Universtity, the National Theatre and the Parliament buildings, ending the walk by the beautiful Oslo opera, central in the construction of a completely new, modern development.
At your choice, you could end the walk by eating lunch at the opera or at the Ekeberg restaurant nearby, which offers a spectacular view of Oslo. It is nearby that Edward Munch got his inspiration for the famous painting "The scream".
The walk starts at the main gate of Akershus castle, and ends at the new opera.

Kirsti was lovely to be with...knowledgeable, well read, a brisk walker, good conversationalist, and very engaging. We enjoyed our time with her, and the terrific summer lunch afterwards. Highly recommend her!
