|About these ratings|
With more than a million visitors annually, Vigeland Park is the most popular attraction in Norway. Its highlight is the 212 bronze and granite sculptures created by the park's namesake, Gustav Vigeland. People come here to sunbathe, picnic or just to wander the beautiful grounds.
Vigeland Park is actually a part of Frogner Park. Vigeland is composed of six main areas: The Main Gate, The Wheel of Life, The Fountain, The Children’s Playground, The Monolith Plateau and The Bridge. You'll find Gustav's pieces dotted throughout the park. Lonely Planet says, "Vigeland's pieces are out there: sculptures of entwined lovers, tranquil elderly couples and downtrodden beggars dot this beautiful park."
Vigeland is located about two miles northwest of the city center (you can take Bus 20 and tram 12 from the Majorstuen station if you prefer using the T-Bane). Admission is free and the park is open 24 hours every day.
