Another setting for the awarding of Nobel prizes. The building is lovely to see and should not be missed on a walkabout of Oslo.

Murals would have been even more interesting if our guide had been easier to understand. Would have loved to have had more background on the artists.

The building is certainly not pretty and reminiscent of Eastern European socialist chic. The interior is very nicely done in art deco style and gives provides beautiful views over the harbor.

Just a great building! Although it is not so beautiful outside, you should see the inside! Beautiful paintings and pictures everywhere. You should see!

Second time to Nordic, better experience than last time. More warm and greeting people, beautiful sky, and cozy atmosphere. Oslo is a great place to walk in, it seems that you will find something surprise you anywhere and anytime. Definitely not the same as the atmosphere as in West Europe, but still worth to go.

Free entry and you can walk round on your own. I spent 2 hours here. You can pick up a leaflet at the entrance and there are notices in English. Entry is not on the harbour side but do look at the bronze statues there. At the main entrance (on the opposite side from the harbour) there is a fountain... More

The City Hall looks very early 20th Century, stark and plain brick, when viewed from the harbour front. Take a walk around to the entrance on the other side, and it suddenly looks much more interesting. There are sculptures and fountains as you climb the steps to the entrance. Visitors can walk straight in and wander around the rooms where... More

This amazing building is an Art Deco masterpiece. The grand hall is a massive room with incredible murals and mosaics all over by Henrik Sorensen. Going up the grand staircase you can then follow a tour around the building through a number of impressive rooms all decorated in murals by different artists. The banqueting hall is incredible. Outside the building... More

If just for the murals alone, it is worth taking a trip over to city hall. We loved seeing the different artists and where the Nobel prizes are awarded.
