Rådhuset (City Hall) Review

This redbrick building is best known today for the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize, which takes place here every December. Inside, many museum-quality masterpieces are on the walls. After viewing the frescoes in the Main Hall, walk upstairs to the Banquet Hall to see the royal portraits. Free drop-in guided tours are available. Meet in the main hall for the 45-minute tour at the noted times. To visit the City Hall Gallery, enter harborside. Special exhibits are hung throughout the year. On festive occasions, the Central Hall is illuminated from outside by 60 large spotlights that simulate daylight.

    Rådhuset Review

    Definitely worth a look. The murals are amazing and tell important Norwegian stories. The view over the harbor is nice, too.
