We went on a tour with an English guide, and we learnt all about the historical Radhus, and we found it very informative and enjoyed learning about the people of Norway. Great impressive rooms and art works. A worthwhile visit.

Red bricks building reminds Stockholm city hall design yet very different. The place where Noble Peace Prize are donated. Very simple painting decoration of city and village life, simple people as the real heroes and children as the real important part of the future, a motive of the Norwegian people and government. Outside is lovely too. Go and enjoy.

On the outside you can admire the astronomical clock and many sculptures made of wood. Inside you can walk through many rooms each with artwork made by famous artists, even one by Edvard Munch.

This building is prominently located in Oslo and can be seen from all of the high points around the City. I took a walk around it and it has some really unusual features including the giant clock. Don't go out of your way but stop by if you are near it. the Doctor

This building is located near harbor and good location for visit. It holds the Nobel price ceremony and for that is worthy the visit. Cheery on the top are all the art pieces that place has. Inside it is just amazing and beautiful (murals and other art pieces are really nice surprise to see). Maybe the building itself would be... More

It was only after a long walk around the city centre that we called into the information centre to ask where public toilets could be found. What a surprise to find all the artwork and sculptures - there are free guided tours during the summer months (which need to be booked in advance). Listen for the 49 bell carillon which... More

The City Hall is worth a visit just to see where the Nobel Peace award ceremony is held every 10th December. It's free to visit. The inside is completely different to the outside, decorated with beautiful paintings showing different events throughout Norwegian history.

The current 20th Century Oslo City Hall was inaugurated in the 1950's following its completion after World War II. The current placement in the city center and facing the fjord is quite striking. The history of the locations of City Hall traces the movements of the city center over the ages. City Hall is the home to annual award of... More

Located near the harbor, City Hall can be easily visited from the cruise ship - or trains, trams, buses all are nearby. We were told that the art inside is worth the tour (we weren't able to go.)

This beautiful building contains striking sculptures and paintings. Most importantly, it is the site where the Nobel peace prize is awarded. It was thrilling to be at the same place where Malala and so many others had stood.
