The Vigeland park

The Vigeland park (also called Frognerparken)

is the world’s largest sculpture park made by a single artist, and is one of Norway’s most popular tourist attractions. The park is open all year around the clock. Entrance to the park is free. This unique sculpture park is Gustav Vigeland’s lifework with more than 200 sculptures made of bronze, granite and wrought iron. Vigeland was also in charge of the design and architectural layout of the park. The Vigeland Park was mainly completed between 1939 and 1949. Most of the sculptures are placed in five units along an 850 meter long axis: The Main gate, the Bridge with the Children’s playground, the Fountain, the Monolith plateau and the Wheel of Life.
