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.

A beautiful and free sculpture park featuring over 200 sculptures by Vigeland, Norway's famous artist. It has wide expanses of lawn, perfect for a picnic as well as a children's park. There is a museum as well although we did not make it that far....More

From the entrance gates, to the sculptures, the fountain and the manicured expanses of lawn, this park is a must see. However, do have a guide to explain the sculptures, or buy a book beforehand so you know what you are looking at, otherwise you...More

I am a bit embarrassed to admit, with my art history and decorative arts background, that I had not heard of this artist or this park before coming to Oslo. In my opinion, no visit to Oslo would be complete without a stroll through this...More

Visited twice..both in the pouring rain and glorious sunshine. Loved it both times. Worth a visit whatever the weather. Also a great freebie in the rather expensive Oslo.

Very cool park with beautiful statues and fountains. There is a cafe at the front of the park with delicious pastries and coffee as well.

One of the must see places of Oslo. This was the third time I've been there and still found it interesting. Besides sculptures the park is also worth to visit.

To be honest, I was not impressed by the sculptures (some of which are considered to be icons of the city) - this contemporary art is not for me. But the park as such is large (for Oslo) and it is nice to walk through...More

Someone said there is currently construction at the park. We are visiting in the end of May. How is the construction affecting the view of the sculptures?

Some weeks ago half of the main sculpture was under reconstruction, so that part was completely inaccessible. A week ago they were working on another part, but it was possible to walk around. It is not a good view when all... More

Yes, the park is open, accessible and worth the visit. There are several beautiful buildings in it, as well as nice views and sunsets.

I will be arriving on the Regal Princess on June 5. Is there public transportation from the pier to Vigeland Park?

Hi! Yes, you can take tram number 12. It leaves from the tram stop called Kontraskjæret, a 2-minute walk from the cruise pier (walk towards city hall), and stops right outside the entrance to the park. Enjoy!
