Oslo: three summer options for groups

Sculpture parks and museum courtyards provide a summer background for events in Norway's capital.

Ekeberg Sculpture Park: This modern sculpture park opened in September 2013 and has this month introduced a new dining concept for groups. Up to 50 people can enjoy a dining and cultural experience in the open, served at one of the sculptures in the park, "Vannspeilet" (the Water Mirror).

Vigeland Sculpture Park: One of Norway's most visited attractions, Vigeland Sculpture Park was completed around 1950. Just south of the Vigeland Sculpture Park lies the Vigeland Museum, where the sculptor Gustav Vigeland lived and worked. The Museum can be rented exclusively outside its regular opening hours, with a courtyard suited for a range of events, including private intimate concerts and car launches.

Birkelunden: One of the most popular parks in Oslo, the park was laid out in the 1860s. The park has a music pavilion dating back to 1926 which is often used for concerts and festivals and groups can also visit on a Sunday, when the park hosts a bric-a-brac market.
