  • During the visit the access paths were covered with ice. t Was an art to the top will but say. Particular to also in the winter under a thick layer of snow to see the works of art. Some even moved.

  • This is quite a large park located on a mountain just east of the city. This is the place you go to have a great view of Oslo and the sunset. The park in itself is also very nice, containing lots of w...  more »
  • I took the bus from the central train station. This is the place known as the stage of Munch's the scream. Cries plates. For the time being, and take a photo in the same pose. Still sunset goes behind the scenes and get more atmosphere! just come see it here from Oslo City views otherwise quite good, so it is quite good. Say always come, come, but if you have time.

  • We highly prefer outdoor activities to museums so this was right up our alley. It's also free, so you really can't beat it. It's right off of the trolley stop, so it's easy to get to as well. This is a really large sculpture park. It's a beautiful park and the sculptures are well incorporated. It's very mature focused, not an overly groomed park. There are benches throughout if you're looking to relax. At the entrance, there is a map that shows different paths and where the sculptures are. This is a good way to make sure you see them all if that's what you're looking for. There are some very bizarre statues. It's a very hilly park, so you'll get your exercise in. There is one place in the park that has a really good view of the city. This was one of our favorite things that we did in Oslo and I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting!
  • If you're in Olso with some time to kill this place is beautiful. Taking the tram up the hill from Oslo Central and it's a short walk to some amazing views. Especially at sunset you'll see incredible panoramic views of Oslo. Keep walking up the hill and you'll go through a beautiful wood with lots of places to enjoy the view.
  • Aside from the steep incline you have to navigate if you're coming at it from the north west, this is a great day out with some really top notch sculpture, including pieces by Dali, Rodin, and Hirst.
  • Visited this park very early in the morning. Was able get wonderful view of the Norway city from top. It showed that it is open 24*7. I visited after 8 am. Still there was noone there to help or enquire, no help window or anything. I was tired of walking 15 km the previous day hence couldn't walk much to see each and every sculpture. But this park has slopes so if you're really in mood of small hike, do come here. Sculptures are good , located randomly. And no standard theme to the sculptured. One is about a girl, one is about some rotating structure whereas one is naked woman covered in white cloth(looks scary from a distance) ☺️
  • Perfect place for any day! Nature, art, great views and place to eat
