What people are saying about Vigeland Sculpture Park

Overall rating

4.4
(1,038 reviews)

I I tour guide was excellent. She spoke perfect English and gave us tons of information about the area. We spent a lot of time in the sculpture gardens and she explained many things there. The bus was practically brand new and extremely comfortable as well. I would say there’s not a lot to see in Oslo, however. We mainly went to the ski jump area and the park With the sculpture garden.

Journey was excellent, and buses regular. Audio guide very informative. Be aware that two companies run these buses, so you need to be careful to get on the correct bus.

The Hop-on Hop-off in Oslo worked very smoothly and went as we had expected.

Most informative and a great variety of attractions/places visited.

Wish we had more time in Oslo.We will definitely come back!
