From the National Theater, we proceeded across the square to the Hard Rock Café for dinner but stumbled onto Aulaen Hall by accident. This is the university concert hall. Its architecture was unusual when compared to the typical Norwegian buildings. Our curiosity piqued us to pop in to have a quick look, and we found the Munch mural on the... More

I was last here to receive my dentistry diploma, and was a part of celebration for the whole class. I had never been inside it before, but the building itself, the art on the walls definitely makes it worth the visit. This belongs to the university of Oslo.

The Aulaen Hall is newly restored to it's original splendour. The walls are decorated by Much paintings. The end wall with the Sun is particularly striking. The Hall is generally not open to the public, but every once in a while one can enjoy the Hall and it's good acoustics during concerts. The Aulaen Hall is part of the old... More
