Oslo City Hall is not a very imposing building from the outside however the inside is revealing. It hosts the Nobel Prize Ceremony each year. A very interesting image of the occasion of the visit of President Obama was on display as were other wall paintings. The main Hall is large and well decorated and cared for.

We only had about 30 minutes for a visit and it was the most amazing place in Oslo - official city hall with all necessary protocol and official standards, and it was also most stunningly designed and decorated venue. you can walk through rooms where the city parliament takes discussions and votes, where the Nobel prize winning procedure is taking...

One of the most unusual building completely in red brick. Locals frequently refer to it as 'ugly', however building is really amazing. Beautifully located close to the Oslo Port and well visible from many picturesque places of the city.

We left this visit until the end of our stay in Oslo as the reviews weren't the highest on Tripadvisor. However, we were very pleasantly surprised. The rooms and wall art are very interesting- as is the council chamber. Don't miss it if you visit Oslo.

Ugly building, but...it's nice inside. Check out the wall paintings. Very communistic in it's art. But a nice story of war time Norway

A classic building in Oslo, in a lovely location by the water. Well worth looking around inside at the wonderful art.

Frankly, I thought the nondescript architecture of the Oslo Radhus to be a letdown in such a beautiful city. I only visited because I was told that it housed a painting by Edvard Munch - which it does, but you can only see it from the far side of a rather large room. If you happen to be passing by... More

i visit city halls in every city. This one really stands out. The most impressive is the big main hall with the past, present and future.

Beautiful building with a lovely interior. Great historical information provided. Very large hall but doesn't take a lot of time to take it all in!

You can't really miss it as it is bang in the centre of town. An impressive building with some impressive murals in the main Hall. Normal entrance is free. Although I assume there are also guided tours that you can join, Lovely views over the harbour and Oslo fjord. Oslo City Hall is a functioning building , and conducts many... More
