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.

Went to this park as part of an organised Bus Tour (H.M.K. Sightseeing) and I feel this enhanced the trip as so much of it was explained to us. As it was March, a lot of the park was in "winter mode" (fountains not working, rose bushes protected by hessian) however this did not detract from the park, or the... More

The park is lovely as a park, lots of nice trails and little knolls. The statues however, are something else. It is no surprise that the man was a fascist, his statues reflect this, got a creepy vibe from them.

We wanted to walk outside on a beautiful day and opted to visit this park and see the sculptures. We didn't know much about it, but that didn't matter, the sculptures speak for themselves. They are beautiful......all of the human figures - men, women, children in different poses-together. There is also a small museum but it was closed by the... More

The park was nice, and was easily accessed via public transportation. Lots of fun sculptures to see.

Allees of trees and little hills, a lovely park. March is obviously not the most scenic time to visit, but looks like it would be lovely in the warm weather. As for Vigeland's work, well, generally a lot of intertwined beefy people and neither of us cared for it. Even the bronze children-amidst-trees surrounding the central fountain, which might have...

A very nice park with great granite sculptures, approximately 400 meters from the Metro! A MUST SEE when in Oslo, not only in the summer!

One of Norway's most famous landmarks-this is a must to visit while in Oslo. You will mingle with the locals and all though there will always be buses with tourists coming and going it is big enough not to feel like a tourist trap. Enjoy!

This is a massive park full of fantastic sculptures, bridges, and fountains. Every sculpture tells a story and it is wonderfully presented. This is an attraction that everyone can enjoy - even small children who are always fascinated by the sculptures. It's also a lovely park just to walk around and relax. Definitely one not to miss!

You can walk to this park from to the city centre, it's not that far away (about 15-20 minutes) and I definitely recommend it. The statues really nice and the overall atmosphere is very relaxed. It's great to take time to really look at every single statue, they are all interesting and when you're done, you can sit in the... More

This is unbelievable. Huge parklands where this guy has created a multitude of sculptures and parklands for the Norwegians. Really worth seeing. Some food available. I enjoyed walking to it from my hotel in the main street of Oslo. Took me a comfortable 50mins, but could stop and coffee or shop or sightsee (the Palace is on this route). Might... More
