The summer palace of Oscarshall, on the peninsula of Bygdøy, Oslo was commissioned by King Oscar I and Queen Josephine, and was completed in 1852.  The palace, with its secondary buildings and surrounding park, is considered to be one of the finest examples of Neo-Gothic architecture in Norway, built by the Danish architect Johan Henrik Nebelung.
