Oslo Cruise Port

Active, Urban and Green

It’s perhaps this combination of stunning nature and capital city vibe with world class museums and attractions which makes Oslo such a unique cruise destination. Cruise vessels can dock at a great location in the city centre. A walk along the quay takes you in one direction to the newly opened Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, and in the other direction to the Opera. From the port you can see the City Hall and the Nobel Peace Centre. A 10 minute ferry-boat ride will take you to the peninsula of Bygdøy where some of the city’s most famous tourist attractions are located
