The park is a quiet, calm place and is very well kept clean and beautiful with lakes, large trees, summer flowers and roses! The sculptures are really just overwhelming even if you are not normally much fan of sculptures and art! Amazing work from the hands of one single man! Lots of benches and grass areas to sit down and... More

Lots of fun. Very big park. If you are looking for a place to run (like a local does here) and/or enjoy the beautiful statues and take a leisurely walk, this is the place for you!

During a one day visit to Oslo, we did a guided tour through Vigeland park. A real treat! The symbolism of the themes that this artist introduced will stun anyone.

I took the HMK sightseeing tour, and this park was one of the stops on the tour. We only had a half hour, but you could spend a half day or more here. It's just a beautiful park, and the sculptures are beyond awesome. The theme of the sculptures revolve around the circle of life. Most were created by one... More

This was my favorite site in Oslo. There were so many sculptures! You can see the story the artist wanted to convey about the different stages of life -- childhood, teen-age life, adulthood and senior living. Really not to be missed!

Definitely don't miss this park and the wonderful cycle of life sculptures. The story behind the. Is amazing and they are really wonderful to look at and ponder. Can get extremely crowded which means Taki g photos without extras in them is hard.

One of the highlights of an Oslo visit. A nice walk through a lovely park with marvelous and fun statues. The whole family will enjoy the parks offerings. Easy enough to get to via the city's trolley.
