Because of proximity close to Nobel Peace Center, Akershus Castle, Port Area and many more. A very simple architecture with two towers, one with the clock and few storeys of building in the middle.

It is a great place loaded with typical history of brave and hard-working men and women. It was supposed to receive grand meeting and receptions. But something did not come out exactly as planned. However, the history is visible in the decoration and you can feel the grandeur!

Good art, it's free to have a look around. Spent 30 minutes tops walking around at looking at the art that surrounds the walls. Its better to go nearer closing as its less congested.

I was never impressed by any city hall ever as I had been while visiting this great building. Its not city hall but a kind of museum. The external structure is very impressive with handmade bricks on it. The sea view side has beautiful statues erected on entrance and other side which has entry door, has huge dial with zodiac...

We were overwhelmed by this beautiful building. You can just imagine being there on Nobel night. Make sure to check the walls, ceiling and all of the various rooms. Tour was unguided and free.
