The Vigeland Park is the world's largest sculpture park made by a single artist, and is one of Norway's most popular tourist attractions. The park is open to visitors all year round.The unique sculpture park is Gustav Vigeland's lifework with more than 200 sculptures in bronze, granite and wrought iron. Vigeland was also in charge of the design and architectural layout of the park. The Vigeland Park was mainly completed between 1939 and 1949. Most of the sculptures are placed in five units along an 850 meter long axis: The Main gate, the Bridge with the Children's playground, the Fountain, the Monolith plateau and the Wheel of Life.

Even if you are not keen on Art, this Park is unmissable. The detail on each of the 200 statues strewn all over the grounds, the posture with perfect carving of each sinew, the real emotion of the moment frozen on the faces, are really captivating. To cap it all and in the centre of the Park, is the 14... More

I have visited the Vigeland Park about 5 times over the last 15 years and every time I visit, I discover something new. This place is amazing and I cannot phantom the amount of time and effort, which was put into creating this park. The hundreds of sculptures displaying the circle of life take on more meaning for every time... More

An absolute must-see in Oslo. Gustav Vigeland spent the last 22 years of his life working on over 200 sculptures of the naked human body. The materials he used were granite, bronze and cast iron. Sat Nav "Madserud Alle" will take you to free parking opportunites at the edge of the park. There is a self-service restaurant with reasonable prices.

This is supposed to be the world's larger sculpture park with over 200 sculptures (granite, bronze, iron). All sculptures have been made by single artist - Vigeland. The Park is large enough to avoid tourists and take a quiet stroll. Well maintained lawns with traditional layouts. Beautiful sculptures through out the park make the visit all the more interesting.

This is a wonderful place to take the family and enjoy all the Vigeland statues. The tour buses pass by and the park offers innumerable photo opportunities. Well worth seeing--even if your time in Oslo is brief.

Whenever, alone, with friends, with colleagues, with family- it doesn't really matter. This place is the nearest heaven you can come here in Oslo. And it's all for free! Don't loose the chance, visit today and be prepared for lots of surprises (don't forget your phone or camera). Have a fun time:))))))
