Akershus Slott

(Akershus Castle)


Severe stone walls and twin spires of the medieval Akershus Slott perch on a rocky ridge high above the zigzag fortifications that Christian IV added in the seventeenth century. The castle is approached through a narrow tunnel-gateway, beyond which the stone-flagged courtyard is overlooked by the main gate.
