The Vigeland Park is the world's largest sculpture park made by a single artist, and is one of Norway's most popular tourist attractions. The park is open to visitors all year round.The unique sculpture park is Gustav Vigeland's lifework with more than 200 sculptures in bronze, granite and wrought iron. Vigeland was also in charge of the design and architectural layout of the park. The Vigeland Park was mainly completed between 1939 and 1949. Most of the sculptures are placed in five units along an 850 meter long axis: The Main gate, the Bridge with the Children's playground, the Fountain, the Monolith plateau and the Wheel of Life.

Every time i am in Oslo, this park is my hideaway. Meditation, relaxation. Statues like alive. You can spend hours there. Taking pictures from all sides. Beautiful fountains with rainbows in the drops. Even rainy day won't upset you when there. Summer full of bbq smell, capoeira dancers. Great time out there.

It is small but very impressive! One artist has created all the art and there are also beautiful gardens and fountains.... More

Rarely can one have the opportunity to stroll around a manmade park where the attractions are the fruit of the creativity of one magnificent artist.

amazing place to be in. You will need atleast 2-3 hours to see each statue carefully and click pix. The work of the sculputure is amazing. A bright sunny day would be the perfect day to visit. Watch every statue carefully because everyone has a meaning I guess.

Vigeland Museum and park - a nice park and a great walking destination. Great opportunity to get your morning exercise while enjoying the residential neighbourhood of Oslo.
