The Vigeland Park is the world's largest sculpture park made by a single artist, and is one of Norway's most popular tourist attractions. The park is open to visitors all year round.The unique sculpture park is Gustav Vigeland's lifework with more than 200 sculptures in bronze, granite and wrought iron. Vigeland was also in charge of the design and architectural layout of the park. The Vigeland Park was mainly completed between 1939 and 1949. Most of the sculptures are placed in five units along an 850 meter long axis: The Main gate, the Bridge with the Children's playground, the Fountain, the Monolith plateau and the Wheel of Life.

If you like lots of statues you'll like this. It's a nice park, great fountains and flowers. It's the abundance of statues not the quality of the art.

This is a large area filled with various sculptures in different materials by Vigeland. Read more on it before visiting to appreciate the nuances and representation but also simply a lovely park to stroll through.

It covers an area of 80 acres. The 212 sculptures are all modeled in full size by Gustav Vigeland over a period of 30 years. Great place to walk and see the sculpture.

This is a must see for visitors to Oslo. Vigeland did a great job depicting humanity. The best statue is the stomping baby...all of us can relate to it. Great walk in the park.

Hi! Yes, you can take tram number 12. It leaves from the tram stop called Kontraskjæret, a 2-minute walk from the cruise pier (walk towards city hall), and stops right outside the entrance to the park. Enjoy!
