Oslo Cathedral Loop

This 3.9 mile route passes some of Oslo’s most famous landmarks. These landmarks include the Oslo Cathedral, St. Hanshaugen Park, Old Aker Church, and Oslo Reptilpark.

Oslo Cathedral: Oslo Cathedral, formerly known as Our Savior’s Church, is the primary parish church in Oslo, as well as the main church for the Church of Norway Diocese of Oslo. Dating back to 1694, the Norwegian Royal Family and the Norwegian Government use the Cathedral for all kinds of public events. Closed in August 2006 for renovation, the Cathedral re-opened with a festive high mass in April of 2010.

St. Hanshaugen Park: St. Hanshaugen Park is a classic, urban, and large public park located just north of downtown Oslo, within the borough of St. Hanshaugen. The park is known for its unique mixture of “intimacy and nature.” The park is said to provide several romantic areas, as well as offer picturesque and scenic views of downtown Oslo, from the top if its rolling hills. Through the years, a number of statues have also been placed in the park.

Old Aker Church: Old Aker Church is a medieval era church located in Oslo. Still an active parish, the church is the oldest existing building in Oslo. As a matter of fact, the oldest part of the surrounding churchyard dates all the way back to the 12th century.

Oslo Reptilpark: Oslo Reptilpark is famously known for housing reptiles, mammals, and birds. They offer a series of feeding shows featuring all kinds of different animals, including crocodiles! If you’re an animal lover, be sure to check the Reptilpark out.
