We visited the Radhus when our Oslo Pass ran out, on a Monday morning at 10 am, because it was recommended and FREE. While not nearly as splendid as Stockholm's City Hall (where we were tempted to renew our wedding vows), the place is notable for its Norwegian pedigree in architecture, decoration, and materials (not the case for the opera...

This large nondescript brick building is actually a great functional building in Oslo. Other than the fact that the Nobel Peace Prizes are awarded here in the cavernous Hall on the first floor, it is also an arena for the political and administrative governance of the city. It houses the City Council, City Administration, and is very famous for its... More

We went to the City Hall to attend one of the free City Hall tours (see the website for details). We went to the English speaking tour at 12. My personal feeling is that the exterior of the building is municipal but indoors you have a box of delights. There is a huge gallery room with art work which holds... More

Very easy to get to. We took buss 31 from Oslo central and got down here. Beautiful murals by Henrik Sørensen and lovely halls. Great to see the podium where the nobel peace prize is given Dec10th of every year.

Fantastic murals, especially I'd you have someone- we had a guide explaining them and the history.(some were painted in secret during the Nazi occupation with clever symbolism.) even my jaded 13 year old enjoyed this

From the outside this building might fool you as it does look like a concrete block. While inside you will see art, paintings and a guided tour gives you a lot of interested information about the building and its purposes and uses. Its used anually for the Nobel Peace Price ceremony.

This is one of the best place in Oslo to visit. It has carved and color painting on side before you enter in the building. A big clock and carved door is inviting you in. And then is a big surprise of full wall paintings of history. The top floor has royal furniture and lighting. And then there is a... More

Oslo city hall is a great place to visit, it is in the heart of Oslo tourist attractions, and unlike Stockholm city hall, Oslo city hall offers free guided tour in English, the building is magnificent with large wall painting that reflects the history of Norway and worthy of hosting the annual Noble peace ceremony.

Rambled in on a wet day not expecting a lot, but the inside of the building is really beautiful. It is also free.

This city hall is more than worth the 10 minutes it took to walk through. There are 2 stories to see with interesting murals. I think the best part are the wooden carvings on both sides of the entrance wings.
