Karl Johans Gate Tours

Karl Johans Gate
Stretching from Oslo Central Station to the Royal Palace, Karl Johans gate is Oslo’s main thoroughfare. Named after King Charles III John (Karl Johan), the street is home to many of the 
city’s top attractions, including the Royal Palace, Stortinget, National Theatre and Central Station. 

During Oslo’s short summer, residents flock to the beer gardens lining the street for al fresco drinks. Come winter, a pond along the street transforms into an ice skating rink. Throughout the 
year, restaurants, cafes and bars lining the street fill up with both locals and visitors. Much of Oslo’s best shops can be found along the street and the smaller streets branching from it.

Practical Info

Many of the businesses along Karl Johans Gate close on Sundays, so try to plan your visit for another day.
