Ekebergparken Sculpture Park - Review
On a hill southeast of Oslo, this wooded park of 63 acres contains 31 works by many international artists, and there are plans to install about 80 more sculptures. It’s also famous of its fantastic view of the city of Ekeberg. Other highlights of the park are:
- An old underground water reservoir.
- The Villa Gardens
- The Couple – This fantastic sculpture seems to hover in the air between the trees.
- The restaurant and coffee barEkebergrestauranten.
- Lund’s House – The geological history of the area.
- Sound of Oslo – An interactive audio exhibit.
- The Woodpeckers Children House.
Visitors usually leave this place completely amazed. It’s as if the park is made up of a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. Fascinating, serene and beautiful.

Ekebergparken Sculpture Park, Oslo Reviews
Beautiful place overlooking the Oslo City. Beautiful sunset views, funny statues. They even have the binoculars for viewing the City. There is also occasional music festival here. It also has nice hiking trails. You can have a relaxing evening here on a nice weather. The tram stops right at the entrance of the park. Nice hidden touristy place.
A wonderful experience! In nice weather, it's great to walk around to find the sculptures by many different artists. There was a lot of variation and many were quite intriguing. I recommend consulting the occasional maps and combine that with a map app on your phone to keep track of where you are so you see it all. You need coins to access a restroom (and the café doesn't open until 11 if you need change). On the top of the hill, there is a camping ground, however, were one can sneak in to use the facilities.
A nice walk with some slopes and different sculptures to view while walking. We went on an very hot day, and the trees provides some but maybe not enough shade, were got quite overheated. At the bottom there is a small playground for kids with some climbing installations. Our youngest was 1.5 years old, he didn’t get any joy from this but our 3 year old enjoyed it quite a lot! There was also a restaurant here which we didn’t test, but right near there is two free binoculars and an magnificent view of Oslo!
We were only able to explore a part of the park although it provides a really beautiful view of the fjord and the city from high up. It was easy to reach the park using public transport although the ride back to the city centre got super crowded (probably because of the time). There are numerous statues in the park although some were really too abstract for us to understand.
The park is in a highly elevated southern position over Oslo City. On a beautiful day the views are spectacular. This is actually a privately owned park and the sculptures chosen by the owner are quite sexual in nature. It’s a big park. Close by across the road near the high school are rock paintings that have been there for over 5000 years.
