Dating from 1299, this medieval castle and royal residence developed into a fortress in 1592 and was rebuilt into a renaissance castle between 1637 and 1648.

Akershus Castle is currently closed due to construction works and the COVID-19 situation. We look forward to seeing you as soon as we open.

 Please note the castle also may close on short notice due to government functions.

A visit to Akershus Castle is like a walk through Norwegian history from the 14th century until the present day. Akershus Castle is a medieval castle from around 1300AD. Remodelled to a renaissance castle in the first half of the 17th century. Here, you will find remains of the original medieval castle, rooms used as the residence of the Danish-Norwegian kings, gloomy dungeons, narrow hallways and majestic halls.
