I did not read anything about this, but looks unique even from the rest of the city. Must see it, it's a 10 mins walk from the Central train station on the main shopping street, shouldn't be too hard to find. I had walked without a map and any plan whatsoever and I just found it :)

I visited here with my 11 year old son. I must admit we was not sure whether to pop in or not...and then we did and were very glad we made the effort. The architecture looks quite brutal on the outside but inside there are many treasures, The banquet hall is impressive as is the decoration and art throughout. It's... More

City Hall is close to some souvenir shops and in front of the wharf and the boardwalk that leads to the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art and to the Fortress.

For tourists I wouldn't say the City Hall should be a must visit, but if you're already visiting Aker Brygge and the Karl Johan Area this will be seen on the way. It's worth taking a walk inside to witness the art if you're already passing by. One of the main TV companies did a questioining of tourists a couple... More

The Oslo City Hall is a truly magnificent display of art & architecture. I highly recommend that you visit and make sure to go upstairs! Admission is covered if you have the Stockholm card which is very convenient. We went during the off season so we were not able to take a guided tour but I'm sure the guided tour... More

As you'd expect it's in the heart of it all. The building is easily accessible and can be toured if you wish, but is also well worth a simple visit to the interior to see the space and it's beautiful murals depicting Norwegian values and life.

Had to see the place where they hold the Nobel Peace Prize. The hall where they have the ceremony is well worth a look. I was surprised that you could go inside to look around,thinking it might be off limits to the public.

Nice if you have a guide to explain all the drawings you see in the walls all around the main hall. It's not a loss if you skip it.

Having heard lots of stories from my Dad and the pictures around the walls depicting its history , I was glad I went here, it was as lovely as described, from the very grand walk up to it, to the murals, galleries and rooms, and history inside, Well worth the visit,

Nothing to see there, seriously. Just an old build that looks not bad at all. I'd say the place is rather refreshing.
