Visit the park that features the lifetime works of Gustav Vigeland (1869 – 1943).
Although located within Oslo’s Frogner Park, many visitors refer to the famous Vigeland art installation as a park in its own right. Featuring the lifetime works of Gustav Vigeland (1869 – 1943), it contains over 200 sculptures, making it the world’s largest sculpture garden dedicated to a single artist.
The various works in bronze, granite and wrought iron depict life in its various stages. Among the most notable – or at least photographed – pieces are “The Monolith”, “The Wheel of Life” and “Man Attacked by Babies”. The Vigeland Museum (Vigeland-museet) at the southern end of the park, contains the rest of his works.
Located at the edge of the city’s tony Frogner neighbourhood, nearby one of the city’s largest pools, Frogner Park is also popular among locals in summer for sunbathing, sports and picnics.View East Norway
