Bogstad Farm in Oslo

This delightful manor house built between 1772 and 1792 was once the home of one of Norway’s most prominent families. Bogstad remained on private hands until 1957, when the family sold it to Oslo municipality as a gift to the Norwegian people. It is today open to the public, which includes its elaborate park. Bogstad also houses the original interior, including original artworks such as Francesco Guardi and Rembrandt.
