ABOUT TOUR

"The cemeteries are full of people who thought themselves indispensable". Charles de Gaulle

Monuments, names, and dates are often found on tombstones, alongside words describing the people buried there. While these features are common in most cemeteries, each country has its unique characteristics, traditions, and history. In this tour, we'll explore three cemeteries located in the heart of Oslo. These cemeteries have transformed into peaceful parks, where people come to relax, read a book, or take a stroll with their children. We'll visit the graves of local celebrities, discuss their lives, the symbols on their tombstones, and even fashion trends in tombstone design. A cemetery tour in Oslo is a unique and insightful way to learn about the country's history and traditions from a different perspective.
