Lonely Planet review

In the 17th century, Christian IV renovated Akershus Castle into a Renaissance palace, although the front remains decidedly medieval. In its dungeons you’ll find dark cubbyholes where outcast nobles were kept under lock and key (one dungeon still holds a rather miserable-looking model wrapped in sackcloth), while the upper floors contained sharply contrasting lavish banquet halls and staterooms.
