Id done the outside - the generally impressive modernist architecture and the fabulous wederkind carvings illustrating norse myths - when visiting the city from a cruise ship. They were just as good second time round - and I still wanted to tweak the english translation... but this time as it was a weekday we had the added pleasure of getting... More

Please do not think that the side of the city hall facing the sea is the front. it is in a very different sort of architecture but this is not the front.  When one approaches from the back, which is the real front, one is immediately caught up by the grandness of this red brick building with two towers, gold...

Magnificent, one of the best and most beautiful town halls I ever saw. It's here where they deliver the peace Nobel. The paintings on the walls are magnific. I advice everyone to give a look. (30 min. Is enough) (free)

This 1950s building is an architectural treat: it's got a great clock, creative masonry, artwork and views. It's a quick block from Karl Johans Gate and worth a look. The great hall inside is amazing.

This is a historic place to visit, being the location of the Nobel peace prize ceremony each year. You can visit during hours and follow the self guided signage to all the rooms including banquet room, Munch room upstairs. Lovely views over the harbour from upstairs.

Seat of city's government, Mayor Hieronymus Heyerdahl proposed the construction. It opened in 1950. Its city's most important public venue hosting the Nobel peace prize every year. Besides day to day administrative work, this is must-see popular tourist spot and houses a enviable collection of art and architecture mainly from Norwegian artists. As you enter, The Great Hall is lined... More

Oslo City Hall is an imposing building, reflecting architectural trends from the 1930s (clean lines, but much wasted space). It is visually pleasing from the outside, but even more so on the inside. The Nobel Peace Prize is awarded in a ceremony here. The city hall is a well-known landmark in Oslo. It neighbours the Nobel Peace Center (where a... More

I loved its architecture, it's really unique. We didn't go in, but it's definitely worth a walk from the outside being just a minute away from the Nobel Peace centre and the Opera House
