The cemetery is a must see in Oslo. It has some beautiful graves and natural surroundings. Visit Munch and Ibsen and enjoy some lovely scenery (morbid I know).

If you have a walk near Grűnerløkka district it is easy to find this cemetery. Small modest cemetery but famous norwegians are buried here, like Henrik Ibsen and Edvard Munch. You will find a map at the gate how to find these graves.

We visited this cemetery because we wanted to see Edward Munch's grave which has a bust of the great man himself at the top of a tall column. This visit was not a disappointment as the whole place is like an attractive, well-kept park. There...More

This cemetery is a very good place to reflect and to get some quiet moments after a busy day. Avoid, though, the peak on the back of Ibsen's gravestone as the sight of used syringes and people using drugs might be very disturbing.

Beautiful old graveyard perfect for a peaceful stroller walk. Don't miss Ibsen's grave when you're here.

We walked there to see the graves of Ibsen and Munch. It is quiet, serene, and locals walk through there as if it were a park. Worth it if you are in that part of town, probably not worth a special trip just to go...More
