The visit was quite a learning experience for me. There was a whole lot of artworks by Norwegian masters and apart from that the décor and the whole interiors exhibited tradition Norwegian styles. The place fortunately has a whole lot of required information and it makes it even more helpful and rewarding

Standing proud in the center of the city, the city hall houses some of the best artworks that oslo has to offer. The entire place is adorned with Norwegian arts and handiworks and a whole lot of information even in English will give you all the required and interesting facts about the culture, history and folklores of this country and...

Something worth a trip if you've time to spare. Oslo isn't huge so this could be a good place to spend sometime. It would have some exhibition as well. The building itself is quite interesting with the bell going off at an interim (didn't really figure out yet).

It was only a couple of weeks after our visit that the Banquet Hall was to be again used for the Nobel Peace Presentation. The walls of the hall have enormous paintings depicting Norwegian life. There are seats along the walls so that you can sit and admire the artwork. You would expect to find the main entrance facing the... More

Was an amazingly beautiful place in a wonderful city. Our hotel was nearby and this is a worthwhile stop in between other visits. Doesn't take too long so can be easily inserted in between and is centrally located.

Explored this place on my visit to Oslo during summer in 2014 when I saw hundreds of teenage girls lying on the ground waiting for big concert that was scheduled in the evening. The view of sea, the fort and nearby Nobel house was great.

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 :)
