This is a hideous building! And I mean that inside and out. I was intrigued after seeing it from the sea front but seriously ... It kind of fits in fine as part of the skyline but it really is a horrid-looking thing. As part of the skyline, it's forgiveable because the shape and form is distinctive and looks like... More

Noteworthy Wall paintings by Henrik Sorensen, Edward Munch. Recent Royal portraits by Haakon Gullvaag Impressive. Good view of the harbour and Aker Brygge. Definitely worth it, because it's free

The Oslo City Hall was one of our favorite sights in Oslo. The architecture and art inside and out are quite astounding. There is a Munch painting in one of the rooms. The free tour is worth doing, as it's quite informative and helps you find rooms that you might not see.

it is worth a stop in to see these beautiful murals. Unfortunately we missed the tours in English which I am certain would have been meaningful but it was still neat to see.

I did not go inside, but the exterior was amazing. Beautiful structure for a "city" building. I enjoyed just walking around it. Plus, it is just across the street from the Visitors' Center.

The scale and 'majesty' of the rooms within the somewhat austere outer walls are quite breathtaking. A great use of 30 mins...

This makes most City Halls look pretty shabby. We were amazed with the mosaics inside and the sheer size of the main room. It is certainly worth the time to take a look.

Nice! You can recognize Olso sight from waterside better, when you see this building. Interesting, original cubic building for practical use. Norweigian minimalism, liked everything. No dislikes. Inside interior is nice.

I only ventured inside the City Hall by chance, and was so glad that I did. I didn;t have chance to join one of the free tours, but wandering in the main hall, and up the stairs into the various chambers was fascinating. Some beautiful mosaics, and a fascinating piece of architecture. So glad that I found this. Entry is... More
