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.

Amazing sculptures

A very huge park with the sculptures as the main highlights here. Definitely worth a visit especially on a good sunny day.

I really liked our walking tour via professional guide through the Vigeland Gardens. The sculptures are excellent and take you through the human emotions of life from birth through death. I thought it was very well done, so give yourself time to stroll through and really look at the sculptures. Emotions are so truly captured in facial expressions and fluid... More

Vigeland was a thought provoking genius. You could study his sculptures all day. The park itself is beautiful to walk around

We enjoyed walking through this pleasant park, looking at the unique park.The "human totem pole" has many interesting features and some disturbing. I'm glad we had a local guide to explain the features and the history behind them - I would recommend that to get the most out of your visit.

The park showcases the works of a very talented artist- Gustav Vigeland. It holds beautiful sculptures in green stone depicting different phases of human life. You'll see a lot of baby and mother sculptures, also some violence is portrayed in a few monuments, but those might be synonymous with the time period during which they were created. We visited on...

We cycled here with our rented bikes from Viking Biking. It was a lovely day and the cycle was nice. The sculptures were interesting. The main tall one was having work done to it so we couldn't get up to it and some of the ones around it were cordoned off too. The ones on the bridge were nice to... More

Gustav Vigeland is probably Norway's most famous sculptor, coming to prominence about the same time as Norway became independent from its links with Sweden. He received many commissions for statues and busts of famous countrymen such as Henrik Ibsen and also designed the Nobel Peace Prize Medal. In an amazing agreement between Vigeland and the City of Oslo, the City... More
