Ugly building, but...

Ugly building, but...it's nice inside. Check out the wall paintings. Very communistic in it's art. But a nice story of war time Norway

One of the most unusual building completely in red brick. Locals frequently refer to it as 'ugly', however building is really amazing. Beautifully located close to the Oslo Port and well visible from many picturesque places of the city.

We left this visit until the end of our stay in Oslo as the reviews weren't the highest on Tripadvisor. However, we were very pleasantly surprised. The rooms and wall art are very interesting- as is the council chamber. Don't miss it if you visit Oslo.

A classic building in Oslo, in a lovely location by the water. Well worth looking around inside at the wonderful art.

Frankly, I thought the nondescript architecture of the Oslo Radhus to be a letdown in such a beautiful city. I only visited because I was told that it housed a painting by Edvard Munch - which it does, but you can only see it from the far side of a rather large room. If you happen to be passing by... More

i visit city halls in every city. This one really stands out. The most impressive is the big main hall with the past, present and future.

Beautiful building with a lovely interior. Great historical information provided. Very large hall but doesn't take a lot of time to take it all in!

You can't really miss it as it is bang in the centre of town. An impressive building with some impressive murals in the main Hall. Normal entrance is free. Although I assume there are also guided tours that you can join, Lovely views over the harbour and Oslo fjord. Oslo City Hall is a functioning building , and conducts many... More

November was a bit cold for me but not cold enough to not love the people. I felt like a very organised city.

The city hall it's easy to find downtown in Oslo. The building has a unique architecture and it's a good place to see, even though it's not something unique. Combine the visit with a walk on the nearby harbour site on Aker Brygge.
