This is the main aula of the University and by now it serves mostly the faulty of Law, since most other faculties have moved to newer quarters. It is located in the heart of the neoclassical building facing University square and Karl Johann Gate. It conserves 11 of Edvard Much's original paintings, the only ones that remain in their original location. The aula serves for all major university events, but also for festivals and concerts. This was the place where the Nobel Peace Prize was given before it was transferred to City Hall. It is open to the public the first Saturday of the month, of most but not all months, so check on ahead of time.

This is most probably the paramount of my cultural experiences in Oslo counting the fact that my visit to the art museum was far from ideal. Nevertheless, the beautuful murals by Munch, all with a very particular philosophic idea, amazing New Year Concert by the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra and a fantastic soprano Kate Royal truly brightened my 24 hours which have already be filled by a supurb singer/showman John Murphy at the Irish Pub called the Mulligan's, some very cosy jazz at the Grand Cafe, the not so hard Rock at Hard Rock Cafe, all pretty much only a five minute walk to the Aula.

The University Aula is located in the middle building of the old campus. It is a place for festive events, concerts, and art. The 11 oil paintings that cover the walls are the only decorations by Edvard Munch that can still be viewed in their original context. The Aula is open for public only on the first Saturday of the month 12:00-15:00, but not in every month. Check the dates from their website.
