  • Awesome park near the centre of Oslo. There is one park where your kids can play. Also, sculptures there are magnificent! Park itself is really big and beautiful. You do nit have to pay to enter the park which is also great. Definitely one of the best memories from Oslo! Great!
  • Gorgeous park in the heart If Oslo. It’s not that hard to get there from the city center. We took just one tram (number 12 I believe) to get there. The park itself is pretty huge, so be prepared to spend at least a couple of hours here. There are several sculptures there, and it take time to appreciate them all. Read up the details online before you go there, you will have a much better experience!
  • A wonderful, amazing and lovely place. I wasn't much impressed by Oslo, maybe because is winter and because it was raining, but this park, definitely, is the best of the best. So much work, so impressive monuments, so alive, so sugestive, so amazing. It's not just a metallic sculpture, it's art, real art. You need some minutes to get in the author mind. And from different sides they look so different. Unbelievable. This is the best place of Oslo. This is the place where you want to comeback and were the time is never enough for to admire all this beauty and this amazing peace of art. I definitely recommend to anyone who goes to Oslo or who plans to go. AMAZING! Thank you, Oslo! Thank you, talented Artist!
  • The sculptures obviously but also loved the nature and birds in the park. Easy to visit using public transport as there is a stop out the front gates. Another bonus is the park is free to visit 24/7. Definitely worth visiting.
  • An awesome collection of stunning sculpture spread in a logical progression all throughout the park. Take time to look at details and the facial expressions of the sculptures. Every sculpture tells a story about the human condition. The season and the light changes the experience so well worth visiting multiple times. Pure to the vision of the artist who spent a large part of his life designing this.
