The statue of King Haakon is placed outside the royal garden at the June 7th square
It was originally named The Triangle Square, but was renamed in 1962 after 7 June 1905, the day when the Union between Sweden and Norway was declared dissolved by the Norwegian government.
I therefor present some of the rooms we visited based on web images.
One of the most famous rooms at the palace is the Bird Room where official photos of guests together with our Royal Family are taken. There are 43 different birds painted on the walls covering images of Norwegian landscapes
From there we moved to the Mirror Room or Queen Maud´s saloon. To enlarge the room the queen got mounted mirrors in all doors and her piano where she held conserts for the family is still there.
This room is also used as part of the Head of State suite including the bedroom below.
Then we enterd the small ball-room where we this year could see some displays of the belongings to crew serving the royal family since 1905.
This is the Ball Room where the royal family arrange Palace Dances and "smaller dinners". A beautiful room and even more beautiful than the great Banquete hall (where more than 250 seats could be serves) alongside this room.
This blogpost opened with our grand daughter Helene at the castle. I also ends it with images of Helene at Aker Brygge having Moules Frites and Ice Cream for lunch.
