Don't be put off by the stark, brutalist exterior

There are some fantastic murals (including a lot on the Occupation and the Labour movement) in the great hall which is where the Nobel Peace prize ceremonies take place.

We didn't go inside, but the view of the city hall from across the little park is a good one. There are gold statues across the front and the two towers balance the very broad front. Care has been taken to preserve the original features.

Last year we visited the City Hall in Stockholm. This City Hall shares many of the same features of that one in that the exteriors are appallingly drab but the interiors are really interesting and surprising. The murals on the walls of several of the rooms are extremely interesting and we enjoyed our visit here on a cold day.

My husband and I finally popped into the City Hall after passing it many times when it was closed. It's a massive 1950s red brick structure with 2 towers which are more reminiscent of a power station than public office. There is artwork everywhere from the external walls as you approach the entrance into it to the vast ceremonial hall... More

We haven't been inside but if you are going to Akershus castle, hike a little bit up and see this Hall from the above. Here you can stop and listen to that nice chimes music of this City Hall. We have been there on 7 P.M. and we enjoyed it.

From the outside the Radhus looks not ver attractive but inside you would be astonished about the architectural performance. Don't miss a look in the 2nd floor and don't rin the bell! ;-)

The city hall doesn't look fascinating on the outside to be honest. But when you take a close look it is just full of amazing details and art works all around the building and also inside.

Lovely murals, friendly staff. You can just walk in to see the many murals in the open area of the city hall.
