The wooden work outside the city hall is wonderful work!

Even you not a Norwegian, you will get interest about Norway myth or history. For me, it is funny to know a beautiful country has these interesting stories.

Nice building on a place near the sea where when you look around, you have one of the most amazing views of the town in my opinion.

The annual Nobel Peace Price awarded ceremony takes place at the Great Hall and this hall is decorated with grant paintings on the first floor. On the 2nd fl includes different theme rooms and one of them is Edvard Munch's painting, " Life". On the outside of Oslo City hall, there is an Astronomical Clock which I found interesting. I...

Do not let the harbor side facade convince you to skip Oslo City Hall (Radhus). Go around the back and take in the murals surrounding the courtyard. Make a reservation for a tour of the building - you won't regret it. We were steeped in Norwegian history and culture by the time we had finished the tour. It's a beautiful... More

The City Hall dominates the harbour area and is a pretty imposing building. You can go inside for free and it's worth 20 mins of your time as it is really quite impressive inside. Covered in colourful murals that depict moments in the history of the city it's a good place to pass some time.

This is a spectacular building and represents Norway's devotion to democracy rather than religion. Must see!

It's an impressive building on the outside with some nice sculptures- but not 'pretty'. Inside, however, is a different story, with the walls covered in some seriously impressive murals. Free to look round and see the hall where the Nobel Prize is awarded. Definitely worth an hour of your time! Located close to the Nobel Peace Prize centre and also... More

Arriving Oslos by ship you can't avoid noticing the big legobrickish red stonestructure. It's the main administrative building for Oslo where you'll find the mayor and hundreds of civil servants. But don't let the building itself be the main reason for your choice whether to visit or not. Because inside you'll be impressed by the great murals painted by wellknown... More

Free for all when I went though it is part of Oslo Pass. Some interesting art work and rooms. Near where ferries depart and between Nobel Peace Center and the castle, so you might as well go.
