    About Oslo Military Society

    This year the 3rd Norwegian-American Aesthetic Meeting will be arranged at Oslo Military Society. Christiania Military Society was founded March 1, 1825. The venues of Oslo Military Society are most often regarded as neo-romantic in style, but also Neo-Roman, German late-history or circular style are the terms of which it is mentioned. The most important thing is that the building is built in a unique style that differs from neighboring building and the dominant 1600s wall of Akershus Fortress, which runs alongside the buildings.

    This is a historical building which has both hosted several respectable people and provided a society with a lot of important people. The Norwegian and Swedish princes, from Crown Prince Gustaf, and the Norwegian kings from Haakon VII of, have been members of the Society. King of Norway Haakon VII became one of the most faithful members of society. His son, Crown Prince Olav was taken in as a member in 1924, and he was also among the most eager members. The following year, the 100th anniversary was celebrated with, among other things, the speech of Fridtjof Nansen, and with Haakon VII and Olav present. Shortly after the anniversary, the Society changed its name to Oslo Military Society a few months after the rest of the city had completed the change of the capitol name.

    With a short break during the war, where values were either hidden or realized, the Oslo Military Society has kept on going. Harald V became a member of the Society in 1959, and Crown Prince Haakon was taken up in 1997.

    The venues of Oslo Military Society are informal enough and yet elegant enough to fit perfectly as banqueting rooms for all occasions. Since we are centrally located in Oslo, it is easy to invite everyone to join.

    In our neo-romantic venues with plenty of space and great furniture we can arrange celebration of round numbers, confirmations, memorials, anniversaries or other gatherings as desired. We have banquet facilities in different sizes, and you can choose a venue according to your wishes and needs.

    Our menu is seasonal so we always cook with fresh produce, but we can also cook after request. The most important thing for us is that we together manage to create the kind of gathering you are looking for.

    As Oslo Military Society is centrally located in Oslo, it is easy to move the party to other premises after you have finished, and those who want to retreat will soon get home with the many public transport services nearby.

    Oslo Military Society is located in Myntgata 3, 0151 Oslo, just beside Akershus Festning.
