Oslo's City Hall is a huge building with two tall towers (200 feet) that overlook the harbor. It is world-famous as the location of the Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony, every December 10th. It sports exterior Art, wood carvings of scenes from Norse Mythology, and interior Art, giant murals along the walls which depict cooperation among Oslo's citizens. The front of the buildings contains six (6) statues which feature working class laborers. It is well worth a visit.

So worth a visit, free entry and lots to see. On the outside are large carved panels telling fables of Norway. Inside huge murals adorn the walls they are so full of colour and life and very well done. there is some lovely carved marble. we could have spent hours in this place.,but cruise ship was due to sail.

A magnificent building - both inside and out - from the wooden friezes to the magnificent murals. Like the Opera House it's not to be missed when visiting Oslo.

Walk into this building to see the extraordinary frescoes and experience the Nobel spirit that has afforded so many the award of a lifetime.
