Step into a world of wonder and browse the works of art on display in Oslo's stunning sculpture park. Showcasing Gustav Vigeland's life work, visitors to the park will discover over 200 sculptures, cast from bronze, granite and wrought iron and each depicting the overarching theme of the human condition. Touching upon subjects like love, motherhood and aging, the towering sculptures leave a lasting impression on all those who visit the park.
Visiting the park
Vigeland Park is located within the larger surroundings of Frogner Park
. Visitors enter the park through the imposing wrought iron and granite main gate, and can enjoy a leisurely stroll through the 80 acres of parkland while taking in the masterpieces on display. Popular sculptures are the Sinnataggen and the Children's Playground.
Vigeland himself was greatly involved with the design and layout of the park, which was developed between 1939 and 1949, and the majority of the sculptures are set around a bridge between the main gate and the fountain. The fountain itself is a beautiful sight to behold, surrounded by a sprawling black and white mosaic.
