Owner description: The Vigeland Park is the world's largest sculpture park made by a single artist, and is one of Norway's most popular tourist attractions. The park is open to visitors all year round. The unique sculpture park is Gustav Vigeland's lifework with more than 200 sculptures in bronze, granite and wrought iron. Vigeland was also in charge of the design and architectural layout of the park. The Vigeland Park was mainly completed between 1939 and 1949. Most of the sculptures are placed in five units along an 850 meter long axis: The Main gate, the Bridge with the Children's playground, the Fountain, the Monolith plateau and the Wheel of Life.

The scuplters are great, but it was cold and rainy all day.. A must to see in Oslo, you can walk from the upper city center and take the tram back.

“I love to go to this park over and over again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is one of the best places to spend some time in Oslo. If you have kids, there is a nice playground in the park. Try to download the app that will keep them occupied for a while, I do not remember what it is called, but search for Vigelandsparken i the app store.

“Impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Completely free and an abundance of statues. An audio guide would be helpfull to learn more on the views of the artist, which weren't always so "correct".

“A gem of a park”

Vigeland park is a must see in Oslo. Gorgeous landscape and so many wonderful statues. It's the life's work of Vigeland. Plan on taking a lot of pictures!

“In 15 min you have seen everything”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I have expected a bit more. But I guess that it is just an expectation of a person who is used to parks like Peterhof (near St. Petersburg, Russia).
