Explore Vigeland Sculpture Park
The iconic Vigeland Sculpture Park (Vigelandsanlegget), which sits inside Oslo’s famous Frogner Park (Frognerparken), is one of Norway’s most famous tourist attractions. Open year-round, this unique sculpture park is Gustav Vigeland’s lifework and contains 650 of his dynamic sculptures in bronze, granite, and wrought iron. The majority of the sculptures are in five themed groups along an 853-meter-long axis. The oldest is the fountain group, depicting the cycle of human life, beyond which can be seen the 16-meter-high Monolith, comprising 121 intertwined human bodies. Tourists will want to spend time exploring the rest of Frogner Park, where there are ample green spaces for picnics, recreational facilities, an enormous rose garden, and the nation’s largest playground. Here, you can also find the Oslo City Museum (Oslo Bymuseum), as well as the Vigeland Museum (Vigelandmuseet), which is just outside the park.
