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.

Travelling by tram is very easy from opposite the central station. Tickets can be bought from the visitor's bureau in the station - take entrance to extreme right of the station with tiger on your left.

Here you can see the plaster casts of the various parts of the sculptures I the Vigelands Park. You can read all about how the granite copies were made in a factory-like process, then assembled in the park.

I went when there was lots of snow of the ground which made the park look picturesque and very pretty. Park is located next to a tram stop so it was very easy to get there and back.

A lovely park to visit and walk around on a fine day. There is lots of information online about the art, the statues and the history, so I won't repeat here. But it was a highlight of my visit and rated alongside seeing Munch.

Hi! Yes, you can take tram number 12. It leaves from the tram stop called Kontraskjæret, a 2-minute walk from the cruise pier (walk towards city hall), and stops right outside the entrance to the park. Enjoy!
