Localization of Oslo in Norway

Tryvannstårnet is the name of the 118 meter high television tower in Oslo, built in 1962 . Tryvannstårnet has a viewing platform at a height of 60 meters, from which you can see the Swedish border in good weather . The tower was open to the public until 2004, but was closed to visitors on January 1, 2005 due to new fire protection regulations. A reopening would involve high investment costs.
