Several of Oslo's best-known historic sights are concentrated on the Bygdøy Peninsula (west of the city center), as are several beaches, jogging paths, and the royal family's summer residence. The most pleasant way to get to Bygdøy—available from May to September—is to catch the ferry from Pier 3 at the rear of Rådhuset (City Hall). Times vary, so check ruter.no for schedules.
