Owner description: 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.

We went on a Panoramic guided tour with the Oslo bus company and the featured stop was this park - I won't tell you the main feature of this park but it was a fantastic tour. I love the attitude of the Norwegians and their children friendly outlook - where else in the world could you discover the works of... More

Vigelandsparken is a lovely park with a lot to see. Vigeland's lively and amazing sculptures are well worth a study and the park itself is a beautiful area to fill eyes and mind with lovely scenery and a lot of flowers during spring, summer and autumn. Take your family for a pick-nick, walk your dog or just feel the freedom... More

Love walking around, looking and absorbing. I went on a Friday while everyone was still at work, and outside of tourist season. Love the peace there. Been there several times before as well, also with kids. The kids love the huge playground at the main entrance. Absolutely worth a visit. Best of all, it's free!

Visiting the Vigeland Parken is a must for everyone visiting Oslo. I was fortunate enough to live close by for a number of years. I have admired every sculpture many times over. Every time I have been impressed by the enormous work that the artist and his helpers have created. I could tell many stories about my visits to this... More
