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.

  • On the outside it doesn't look like much, but as you get closer to the building you'll realise how interesting it is. Inside you'll find the beautiful hall where they award the Nobel Peace Prize, and basically across every wall in every room is a painting with a story.
  • Oslo City hall where the Nobel Peace price is awarded. Nice place with beautiful pictures & architecture. Peaceful place as well.
  • This building drives me crazy by it look. It's incredibly modern and cool. The clock beats every hour by different chimes and melodies. Really great one!
  • The Peace Nobel Price ceremony venue will really take your breath away. The main room has magnificent drawings and patterns on the walls.
  • The ceremony awarding the Nobel Peace Prize is presented on 10 December each year here. So when I visited the hall I felt like in the ceremony. I also liked patterns on the walls, it's beautiful. There are an exhibition of souvenir from around the world included the gorgeous Royal Barge Suphannahong from Thailand.
