Beautiful exterior

We only toured the outside of the building. It has a collection of wall sculptures/plaques for Norse mythology plus a beautiful clock and fountain. Well worth the walk.

We dropped by over the Easter weekend and we weren't really sure what to expect especially as it looks closed with the entrance doors shut. However, the friendly security guard made us most welcome. Very interesting inside - what a space. Amazing. Plus free entry and free toilets, always a bonus. If you wander past, then do wander in.

It provide a prominent landmark for Oslo which can be viewed from the sea. It is also a meeting place for several city tour companies. Walking distance from the sentral train station via Karl Johan's Gate. Walking distance to the cruise center, Akerbrygge and the fortress

See the many tapistries that tell the history of the country. The architecture is amazing. A special City Hall as the Scandinavian countries invest in their City Halls, ew heard the bells daily in our hotel which was nice.

Vast interiors, decorated with murals in range of styles, with stunning views across to fjord. And it's free! Tip: good spot to access free public toilets.

It is worth to look inside the City Hall (free of charge) and to admire first the wooden frescoes outside beside the stairs that depict the characters of Norwegian mythology and then inside the paintings about the history of Norway. A very special and unique building.
