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.

Walked there from the city centre and it was marvellous. Really grand area behind the royal palace to the park.
Park is a wonderful place to just enjoy and have a good time. Lot to see and to do.

“well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

One of the main attractions in Oslo .This park is just lovely,the sculptures are stunning and the park is very nice . Lots of children on the play park , it is free to get in but if you use the park loo it is a euro to use. We used the hop on bus from near our cruise ship .

“Fascinating sculpture park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Vigeland's life work in Frogner Park - over 600 larger than lifesize nudes representative of all stages of human life. Fascinating! Easily accessible by tram or subway.

“Well worth the visit and it is for free.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We visited the Vigeland Sculpture Park on a lovely sunny day in June and were very impressed and would recommend it as a must see if you are visiting Oslo. The amount of work is vast and hard to imagine and the sculptures themselves are massive in scale but perfect from being able to feel the bones in the spines to the creases in the feet of the statues. We walked here from our hotel on Parkveien through the burough of Forgner which in itself is a lovely walk through a wealthy area of planned streets where a lot of the embassies are located. We spent most of our time in the Vigeland Sculpture Park looking at the sculptures so perhaps didn't take as much of the park in as we should have. They possibly could do with some picnic areas. There is a cafe shop with toilets but unfortunately you have to pay into the toilets. But the park itself is free!
