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.

I loved the sculptures, don't miss this. And the park itself is very nice - huge. The concierge at the hotel advised me to take the subway. Big mistake. Very difficult to figure out how to get to the park and the sculptures when you...More

All statues in this park are the work of Vigeland (the official name of the park is Frogner Park in Frogner, of course.) It is hard to imagine creating a sculpture showing so many human bodies in so many configurations. It's a very popular park...More

Beautiful gardens and incredible statues. Well worth the time to explore this place. Climb the stairs to the top of the Monolith Plateau for nice views of the surrounding area. Although it was raining when we visited it was still a highlight of our trip...More

Incredible statuary every few steps. When he developed this park, he did not have explanations to the statues so t hat you could appreciate them on your own and have your own feelings about the. All those with selfie sticks did become particularly annoying.

I'm not convinced what artist had in mind. For me sculptures are a bit weird and awkward. But rest of the park in nice.

A must visit place when you are in Oslo. The sculptures are absolutely fantastic, what a talented man Vigeland was! Best of all, it is a free attraction.

Enormous park full statutes of all kinds. Wonderful place to stroll around and see the obelisk and other monuments.

Not everyone's cup of testing but the sculptures are fantastic and the details are superb. The only downside to the place is the 150 Norwegian Kronas to go to the toilet.

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

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!
