Looking for an adventure that could bring you off the beaten track, away from the large crowds at the main tourist attractions, and show you colourful, lively neighbourhoods only known by locals? Stop searching! Our Medieval Oslo Walk tour is made for you!

Yes, the medieval town burned down back in 1624, causing the rebuilding of a new city several miles away from Oslo’s original site (ahem… today’s Oslo city centre). But did you know that archaeological evidence from the past can still be seen today, perfectly intertwined with parks, streets and buildings that have no cause to be envious of Oslo’s main tourist attractions?

Beginning with impressive ruins of medieval churches and barracks, our tour will bring you on a journey following the footsteps of the thousands of women and men who helped rebuild what was turned to ashes 400 years ago.

So once you’ve said, “been there, done that” to Oslo’s top tourist attractions (yes, we go there too!), see something “new” with us in town! Whether you are interested in history, architecture or modern cultural vibes, one thing is certain: after our Medieval tour, you will be able to brag to your friends by saying: “I know Oslo”.
