Government 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.

  • Big shopping mall (for Norway) and it is always crowded. Nice choice of stores and aces to sit and eat or just have a coffee. If you in a rush to get to the toilet, forget about it - there's always a line.
  • Good place nearby central station. Not so cheap products as anywhere in Norway. Food court has different options to eat.
  • A big mall in the centre of town. A large selection of stores are situated here, with a large selection of clothes, shoes and accessories, among others. However, the layout can be a bit confusing so prepare to be a bit lost while searching for a specific store.
  • OMG Oslo is the best city. So much to do and see. It's georgous and so clean. The people are very friendly. Does have a begging problem, can't be easy for them, as it's a very expensive city.
  • You can find some boutiques here, but I wouldn't say this place is packed with places to shop. Found some Internet offered by the restaurants. There's a small grocery store Meny from which you could buy the basics.
