I was a little surprised when heard that Grieghallen is a city attraction. On the whole the building is used for concerts and conferences... The facade is covered with glass and shining panels according to canons of the modern urban architecture. Similar plastic cubes are spread around most cities all over the world.
At the front is a square where sometimes the young heirs of the vikings dance rumba and cha- cha.
Also earlier there was an ATM near the entrance- it was the only place in the area where you could take some cash... But now as I know the ATM is removed.
