The Royal Palace in Oslo is open to the public from June 22nd until August 25th. We invite you to a private tour of the Palace, where you will see some of the important and beautiful rooms.
In addition to a tour through some of the most beautiful state rooms in the Royal Palace, a new exhibition is mounted every year. This year’s exhibition is entitled «Where Queens Meet».
Where Queens Meet
The exhibition marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of Queen Maud.
Maud was Queen of Norway from 1905 until her death in 1938. When King Harald ascended to the throne upon the death of King Olav on January 1991, Crown Princess Sonja became Norway’s first queen in 53 years.
Displaying wardrobe items and various objects, the summer exhibition depicts a variety of situations where the two queens “meet” across the years – on the Palace Balcony, for afternoon tea in the Mirror Hall, at a grand Palace ball in the Great Hall, and at a table laid for Norway’s first ladies, past and present, in the Banqueting Hall.
Date: Thursday August 22nd
Time: 16.45 precisely – the tour starts at 17.00 and finishes at 18.00.
Meeting point: By the entrance from the west side of the Royal Palace facing Parkveien.
Practical information: Please note that there is no public parking available at the Palace premises.
Please note that this event is only for Expat members of the OCC. Password for sign-up is given in the invitation.
We look forward to seeing you at the Royal Palace!
