Vigeland Sculpture Park (Vigelandsanlegget)
Comprising of more than 200 bronze, granite, and cast iron sculptures by the Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland, Oslo’s Vigeland Sculpture Park is the world’s largest such complex made by a single artist. Located within Frogner Park, it is also one of Oslo’s top attractions, drawing more than a million visitors a year.
 
The Basics
Most of the park’s sculptures are placed in five units along a 2,788-foot-long (850-meter) axis: the Main Gate, the Bridge, the Fountain, the Monolith, and the Wheel of Life. Walking through the Fountain section, you can see more 60 bronze reliefs, portraying children and skeletons in the arms of trees. The Bridge, connects the Main Gate to the Fountain and is home to the park’s most famous work The Angry Boy. Many of the sculptures depicts people experiencing intense emotions.
 
Many private and group city tours of Oslo, by bus, foot, and bicycle, visit Vigeland Sculpture Park. Some allow free time to wander through the park at leisure, while others offer more in-depth insight into the stories behind the park and some of its most famous sculptures.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Vigeland Sculpture Park is a must-visit destination for art and culture lovers.
  • The sculpture park is part of Frogner Park, Oslo’s largest public park.
  • The park is free to visit.
 
How to Get There
Take bus no. 20 or tram no. 12 from the city center. Westbound T-bane trains stop at Majorstuen station, which is a short walk to Vigeland. If driving, you can follow Ring Route 2 to Majorstuen, but parking is limited. Alternatively, skip the hassle by visiting as part of a guided tour that includes transportation.
 
When to Get There
The park is free to enter, 24 hours a day, year-round. The most appealing time of year is summer when Frogner Park’s open-air swimming pool and restaurant are open and the grassy expanses are filled with sunbathing locals.
 
Vigeland Museum
Also in Frogner Park and housed in the artist’s former studio, Vigeland Museum is home to a large collection of Vigeland’s sculptures, drawings, and woodcuts. His apartment is on the third floor of the building, and you can book an appointment to tour it. The museum charges an entrance fee.

The Ultimate Study of the Human Form at Vigeland's Sculpture Park with a Local

The Ultimate Study of the Human Form at Vigeland's Sculpture Park with a Local

This Experience is provided by a private local. Come with me on this highly unusual tour to discover one man’s artistic obsession and a lifetime of work dedicated to the sublime study of the human body in all its glorious simplicity. This Experience is a treat for both serious art lovers and those who are curious to discover something new and unique! The bronze and granite sculptures at the park portray humans in a variety of situations from everyday to more symbolic (such as the famous “Man Attacked by Babies”) to highly abstract such as the centerpiece of the complex. As we walk through the park, I will introduce you to the most important pieces and tell you the background story of each. Yet, since focusing only on those highlights does not quite reveal the true nature of the collection, I will also guide you and draw your attention to the seemingly more casual pieces that genuinely capture the essence of the collection.
