Akershus Fortress is one of the main sights for tourists visiting Oslo. It is convenient located in the city centre, and it is a beautiful place to walk around the historical ground. I was walking around town with some Couchsurfers when we stumbled upon a group of people training Viking fighting in one of the courtyards of the fortress. I do not know if they come here regularly, but you might be lucky and spot them if you visit the fortress during the weekends. You can also see a video of the fight HERE.
