Vigeland Park, Oslo: 15 of the craziest, weirdest and wonderful sculptures!
Angry babies, the circle of life, monoliths and nakedness: not exactly what we were expecting when, after two weeks of Norwegian road trip wilderness, we arrived in Oslo and visited the incredibly weird and wonderful Vigeland Sculpture Park! Vigeland is the life work of Gustav Vigeland and the sculptures represent the Human Condition illustrating the complexities of relationships and the journey from the cradle to the grave. We were intrigued and ready to explore!
PS In case there was any doubt, the angry babies and nakedness form part of the 212 bronze sculptures scattered throughout the park!
Vigeland Sculpture Park
The Vigeland Sculpture installation is a fascinating collection of sculptures set among acres and acres of green grass. As we caught sight of the sculptures we were amazed by the mix of thought provoking, eye opening and utterly beautiful creations.
Like many of the crazy and wonderful places we come across on our travels pictures speak a thousand words so here’s a round up of our favourite Vigeland sculptures! Enjoy!

We had no idea what to expect as we arrived at Vigeland Sculpture Park but we were in for a fab surprise! Wandering around Vigeland attempting to interpret all the amazing sculptures was one of the highlights of our time in Oslo. The sculptures are beautiful and strange and Vigeland is definitely at the top of our Oslo must see list list!
