Oscarshall Palace reawakens – and it is white again!
Recently the scaffolding which has covered Oscarshall Palace in Oslo for several years as the palace has been renovated has started to come down – and reveal that the palace’s façade is now again white, as it was until King Haakon VII after the Second World War approved the suggestion that it should be painted pink.
Oscarshall Palace has been closed to visitors since September 2005 while restoration work has been going on. Modern facilities have also been installed to make the 160-year-old palace better suited to receive visitors. It will open to the public again on 26 August.
