Oslo City Hall

The Oslo City Hall was build between 1931 and 1950 in a mixed modernist-historic style. On December 10th every year the Nobel Peace is awarded in the main hall of the building (pictures 2, 4). While looking relatively unpretentious from the outside, the inner decoration of this brick building is pretty impressive. Over forty artists from Norway worked on the wall paintings and sculptures to design a “palace for the people” (picture 5). The building is still in active use today. While the two towers house many offices of the city administration (picture 1), the city parliament is meeting on the first floor in the center part of the building (picture 3). The city hall is open every day in summer from 09:00 to 18:00 and in winter from 09:00 to 16:00. Don’t miss it if you visit Oslo!
