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.

Basing my review purely on anticipation because both times I've attempted to go (Christmas '10 and 14) it's been closed. Gutted. I love his work and the park is stunning - one day. One day.

The statues are weird but fun and gave us a laugh. Pretty park to walk around and have a picnic. Fountains are lovely. Easy to reach on the tram from the city.

This is good for all to see. Totally free, with very interesting statues. Take time to look at each one to understand the emotion the artist was displaying from the piece. I am not particularly an art enthusiasts, but this is truly a place to...More

This is a beautiful park to walk around, and very large. The statues are also pretty interesting, a lot of different emotional expressions to take in. That being said I don't think this park is much better than those in other major cities. It's a...More

Vigeland was a genius! The park is filled with his sculptures of humans in bronze and granite each with rich details telling great emotional stories. Spend an hour, could have spend three!

The entire sculpture park is dedicated to one sculptor - Vigeland. The sculptor did an amazing job over a twenty year span, to produce over 200 sculptures depicting life and the cycle of life. Be sure to visit with a guide who can fully explain...More

Its great to see how Vigeland worked, how it was possible to work in such a different way in past times. Its very strange that it was possible and extremely weird to imagine the reactions if it had happened today. The contemporary shows can also...More

Gustav Vigeland was gifted the land for this Park by the city of Oslo, on the condition that he dedicated his life to filling it with gorgeous sculptures. Vigeland agreed, but demanded he be the sole sculptor. The result is a set of sensual sculptures...More

Some weeks ago half of the main sculpture was under reconstruction, so that part was completely inaccessible. A week ago they were working on another part, but it was possible to walk around. It is not a good view when all... More

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!
