The site of the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony each year, Rådhuset also serves as the nexus for the municipal government and one of the city's most recognizable buildings. Built over a period of nearly 20 years beginning in 1931, the building survived German occupation during World War II. The central facility features modern brick architecture, including two towers rising to a height of 66 m (217 ft). Be sure to listen for the carillon that rings out from one tower on the hour. Explore the interior to see the extensive frescoes and oil paintings that cover the walls, depicting famous events, legends, and themes from Norwegian history. The banquet hall also features paintings of royalty and more oil frescoes.

Это симпатичное угрюмое здание.Точнее комплекс. Полную картину можно видить отойдя к морю. Симпатично как в Норвегии more »It's a pretty gloomy building. The full picture can be seen going back to the sea. Cute as in Norway
Didn't get a chance to go in, but the building itself is impressive and an easy landmark when wandering around the downtown area. more »
I am from NYC & London, so well aware of subways, but this is the coolest subway station ever. Looks like it is carved out of a red cave.
Staircase is always under construction or they care too much about our health?!😊
