If you’re in the mood for sculptures after your visit to the famous Vigeland Park, head for Ekebergparken. This little oasis is lovely regardless of the season.

Ekebergparken is the less famous baby brother of Vigeland Park, and it truly deserves more. For anyone who loves art and nature, this sight is magic. Ekeberg has a long history, already since 1889, it’s been a public park. Today you’ll find 35 sculptures erected in the park, with more to come. It’s a big park with paths, woods, and art existing together.

In the park, you’ll find art and sculptures from some of the biggest artists of modern times, like Sebastian Dalí, Richard Hudson, Gustav Vigeland and Marina Abramović, to mention a few. Ekebergparken is located close to Oslo Central Station, and if you go by tram, you can take both lines 18 and 19 to Ljabru station. The park is open daily, year-round, and has no entrance fee. Special events and exhibitions can be found here.
