Oslo Architecture Walking Tours – Traditional, Contemporary or Both

Oslo Architectural Tours can be an introduction to the city’s main buildings or focused on your group’s interests.

We can provide information on areas and building types ahead of your walking tour. For example a group of architects interested in Oslo office buildings could be provided with information allowing a tour programme to be agreed before their visit to Norway. Visitors can be met from their accommodation or at the starting point of their Norwegian walking tour.

FRAM Museum Oslo Building
“Framtid” (Future) will be the next extension to the FRAM Museum, dedicated to polar exploration and environmental education. The result of an invited architectural competition, our proposal will propel the museum towards the future with a simple idea: that architecture exemplifies how we care for our environment.

Fagerborg Kindergarten
Design: Reiulf Ramstad Architects
Fagerborg Kindergarten Oslo
Kindergartens are all too often made up by a basic or random and often very poor architectural design. The Fagerborg Project did not want to be a part of this trend but rather give the kindergarten an important priority in order to develop a building with a stimulating environment for the next generation.

Bislett Stadium Building
Design: Arkitektfirmaet C. F. Møller
Bislett Stadium Oslo
It has been a sports centre since 1907, and the first stadium opened in 1920. In 1995 C. F. Møller Architects won the competition for a new Bislett Stadium.
