The building is somewhat okay looking...but the plaza in the front of of the building is a good place to be, it's central and has a beautiful view!

We visited the city hall on a recommendation from a local, and we are glad we did. It's free to just pop in for look and a wander, and we loved the art throughout the building. There were signs with descriptions in Norwegian and English giving a little background and some of the local folklore that goes with the art.... More

I first visited Radhusets or Oslo City Hall 30 years ago as an exchange student. Now with my family, the Oslo City Hall is still looking good. Made entirely with Norwegian materials, designed with Norwegian architecture and filled with art pieces at its gallery from Norwegian artists such as Per Krohg, Henrik Sørensen, Alf Rolfsen and Edvard Munch, this is...

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.
