Akershus Slott og Festning

Oslo, Norway

After our shopping excursion, we walked from downtown to the Akershus Slott og Festning, a.k.a. the Akershus Castle and Fortress, which overlooked the cruise terminal and our ship.

The complex of stone buildings and walls was begun toward the end of the 13th Century, and it defended Oslo successfully against foreign invaders until the Germans arrived in 1940. Part of the fortress is still used by the Norwegian defense ministry.
