Free Oslo: Frogner Park

free, Kid Friendly, Travel Tips — By Anne-Sophie Redisch on August 26, 2010 at 3:00 pm

Frogner Park is home to the world’s largest sculpture park by one single artist. Gustav Vigeland created the 212 bronze and granite nudes that grace this park, depicting human life in all its forms. Vigeland was also responsible for the lay-out and architecture of the park.

Besides being one of Oslo’s top attractions, Frogner Park is also a favourite local haunt. This is where Oslovians walk their dogs, exercise, stroll, sunbathe, have a beer, an ice cream or a meal, meet friends, go to concerts (including the annual cool Norwegian Wood rock concert) or just hang out. Kids love it too: following the entire 10000-feet-long labyrinth, climbing on the statues or imitating them. (Angry little boy is a particular favourite for that). Toddlers frolick around, completely naked if the weather is nice.
