"Vigeland Sculpture Park" Vigelandsparken Tip by marielexoteria

Vigelandsparken, Oslo: 138 reviews and 305 photos

One of the must sees in Oslo. It's an open air park with sculptures created by Gustav Vigeland. This park is so big it's divided into 6 areas: The Main Gate, The Bridge, The Children?s Playground, The Fountain, The Monolith Plateau and the Wheel of Life. The statues portray people engaging in everyday things, like hugging. The white statues, made of granite, are darker on the private parts, butts and breasts because that's where people like placing their hands the most hehe.

During the summer this is a popular picnic place, which I can understand not only from the beauty of the gardens but because Kafé Vigeland isn't exactly cheap.
