This is a good building to walk by and admire the architecture. It's history in front of you but since we couldn't go inside we just took a walk by the park on this beautiful Saturday morning.

Very nice and interesting building in half of Karl Johans gate. It diverse sightseeing of this most famous street in the direction of the royal palace. Unfortunately due to long queues we were not able to visit it from the inside.

In Oslo for a few short hours having arrived on a cruise ship. We were ashore taking in the sights and I must confess that when we came across this rather impressive building that we had no idea whatsoever that it was the Norwegian Parliament....More

good but not spectacular. Park facing the parliament, where they do protestations for some causes. it is not allowed to be very close to parliament doors or walls as we have been told

This grand architecture sits right in town which you won't miss when walking down Karl Johan's Gate. We did not have time to go inside but having our photos taken there was good enough. Unfortunately there were cranes nearby which blocked a perfect picture.

It was built at the end of 19th century, situated along Karl Johan's gate. It is right in the downtown, halfway from the castle of the central station. It was raining whole day on May 16, we were really enjoying the cold and wet weather...More

This may not be a tourist attraction but one of the beautiful architectures you will find in Oslo. I didn't take much photos because of all the cranes around it during our visit. But it's a good stopover if you're walking around town.

Lovely building, well positioned along Karl Johans Gate, before you enter a little park. I liked the bridge set in front of the building. Guided tours are available.

Put this on your list when walking around Oslo. The buildings are beautiful and you can see the guards standing in front.

Oslo has so many old & new architectural features, and the Parliment Building counts itself amongst the more interesting
