The Gamle Aker Church is a nice little medieval church which happens to be the oldest building (made of limestone on top of a silver mine) in Oslo, being built by King Olav Kyrre in 1080 as a church for all of Vingulmark.

It is free to go inside, daily 1200 to 1400... I did go at a diffrent time but still was able to peek inside. There is a pulpit and baptismal font from the 1700's. And there is small garden outside the church.

Directions: The church sits on top of the Telthusbakken hill, and is located centrally in the borough of St. Hanshaugen
