Rick Steves recommended route

Photo Slide Show: 22 photos; click anywhere in the photo to advance.

Tips/Tricks:

The Opera House may be visible from the cruise terminal, depending on where the ship is docked; it's a huge structure with predominent glass features and a pedestrian walk-around that's heavily used. City Hall is well worth a visit; follow the signs to enter at the public entrance.

A good summary of Oslo attractions is on Rick Steves' website

Comments:

Pleasant walk to the ferry; ferry tickets are bought onboard the vessel. The ferry continues on to an additional stop that serves other museums; the ferry guide can answer questions. Consider following the waterfront path to the ferry; walk via the downtown route back to the cruise terminal to see more of the city.
