Vigeland Sculpture Park Tours

405 Reviews
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.
