Government Building Architectural Building
The site of the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony each year, Oslo City Hall (Oslo Radhus) also serves as the nexus for the municipal government and one of the city's most recognizable buildings. Built over a period of nearly 20 years beginning in 1931, the building survived German occupation during World War II. The central facility features modern brick architecture, including two towers rising to a height of 66 m (217 ft). Be sure to listen for the carillon that rings out from one tower on the hour. Explore the interior to see the extensive frescoes and oil paintings that cover the walls, depicting famous events, legends, and themes from Norwegian history. The banquet hall also features paintings of royalty and more oil frescoes.

Where to stay in Oslo

A majority of Oslo's hotels and smaller accommodations cluster along Karl Johans Gate, the city's main drag connecting many of its downtown attractions. If you want something a bit more colorful than the average hotel, consider one of the many bed and breakfasts that have been cropping up in recent years. To escape the crowded streets, but still be walking distance from major sights, stay in the Frogner or Majorstuen neighborhoods near the royal palace. As you can probably guess, lodging is quite expensive in this European capital.

  • This is such a great building, the walls and ceilings are painted art in each room depicts the history of norway. We had a tour guide explain each room, which vastly enhanced the experience.  more »
  • It's impressive from the outside (note sculpture and clock) but the really interesting stuff is inside. The main meeting hall has a huge and impressive mural. Take the time to really look it over: the...  more »
  • There is really nothing to see here, I mean the architecture is fine, it is a pretty building, but that was pretty much it, it really didn't do it for me where I would go look at it again.  more »

  • Great experience, and weather was perfect. If you're not used to large cities (like myself) you may get lost from one time to another. But that's fine because the citizens will gladly help you out. Is there anything this city doesn't have?
  • Oslo is a beautiful city. It has a good size, it feels like a capital city but it's small enough to walk around in. A lot of nice sights, good restaurants and pubs. Very well recommended!
  • Nice looking mall on the inside with natural light coming through. Think it's a mall that attracts the younger generations based on the products these stores carry. Not too many options in my opinion
  • Nice mall right in the center of the Oslo city. Have small food court. You get different god brands. Near both buss terminal and subway.
  • Lots of shops and eating places, maybe a tad bit too many people for my taste, but that means that is is popular
