Absolutely brilliant free outdoor sculpture park. Works by world renowned artists dotted around a lovely wooded hillside overlooking Oslo. The views are fantastic. The tram stops right at the entrance.

Easy-accesible with public transport, close to city-center, nice views, clean, unusual installations, wild forest, can see all the Oslo-center from the top, nice for walking and spending time with friends or family in a quiet and peacefull place.

We went for a run around the park looking for these beautiful sculptures. It was very peaceful, well-kept and even a challenging run at times since there were some steep paths. It was a nice mix of modern and classic art (Rodin, Dali, Renoir). It’s...More

Fortunately I had printed the map before hand, because it is otherwise not well marked and a little tricky to find specific things you might be looking for. The park is hilly, so you should be prepared for some uphill walking. The petroglyphs are marked...More

Well worth the walk from Oslo CityCentre, or take the tram. The views of Oslo are fantastic, although we found the sculptures just ok.

We took the tram (18 or 19 both work, I believe) from City Centre; it's maybe a 10-15 minute ride, and the stop - to my recollection - was called "Ekebergparken". It's an uphill walk from the tram station to the main... More

Oslo visit - how best to group activities across 4 days (2 Replies)
I am trying to group activities into logical days. Will have 4 full days in Oslo. At least the first one I will probably be very jet lagged. Any insights into the below groupings would be appreciated. And if there are other activities that would fit with what I have listed, would love to hear about. A '*' before an item below means that I must see that. My full Norway itinerary is listed at the bottom of this post. *Munch Museum, Botanical Gardens, Akerselvo River Malhallen Food...More

WAW! You love to spend time in the cities yeah..;) 9 nights in 2 cities and only 5 nights on 2 places in the beautiful Fjords... on the north and south side of the same fjord... Sognefjorden... If I was you, I should cut down to max 2 nights in Oslo and 2 nights in Bergen, and then rent a car and do a longer drive in the fjords area; from Bergen, south to Stavanger and into Lysefjorden for Pulpit Rock and maybe Kjerag (if you're up to hiking), then north to Hardanger Fjord and Sognefjorden,...More
