Ekebergrestauranten is a restaurant and banquet facility in a hillside overlooking downtown Oslo, Norway. Ekebergparken Sculpture Park is the nearest neighbor. The restaurant has been owned by Christian Ringnes since 2005.
The Functionalist building was first completed in 1929, drawn by architect Lars Backer. The restaurant has flat roofs, large windows, a terrace and an arched entrance in a corner tower. The architect maximized the number of window seats.

We highly prefer outdoor activities to museums so this was right up our alley. It's also free, so you really can't beat it. It's right off of the trolley stop, so it's easy to get to as well. This is a really large sculpture park. It's a beautiful park and the sculptures are well incorporated. It's very mature focused, not an overly groomed park. There are benches throughout if you're looking to relax. At the entrance, there is a map that shows different paths and where the sculptures are. This is a good way to make sure you see them all if that's what you're looking for. There are some very bizarre statues. It's a very hilly park, so you'll get your exercise in. There is one place in the park that has a really good view of the city. This was one of our favorite things that we did in Oslo and I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting!

Aside from the steep incline you have to navigate if you're coming at it from the north west, this is a great day out with some really top notch sculpture, including pieces by Dali, Rodin, and Hirst.

Visited this park very early in the morning. Was able get wonderful view of the Norway city from top. It showed that it is open 24*7. I visited after 8 am. Still there was noone there to help or enquire, no help window or anything. I was tired of walking 15 km the previous day hence couldn't walk much to see each and every sculpture. But this park has slopes so if you're really in mood of small hike, do come here. Sculptures are good , located randomly. And no standard theme to the sculptured. One is about a girl, one is about some rotating structure whereas one is naked woman covered in white cloth(looks scary from a distance) ☺️

It is a veey nice park to wonder around. Interesting sculptures and art to be found everywhere. Just be aware that some hill are a bit steeper.

This park has a lot to offer and is very different from all the parks I have been to. You can see a lot of different statues and art which might be quite controversial or scary. In the summer it is definitely a nice place to just lay down in the sun and watch the city from the top.

If you're in Olso with some time to kill this place is beautiful. Taking the tram up the hill from Oslo Central and it's a short walk to some amazing views. Especially at sunset you'll see incredible panoramic views of Oslo. Keep walking up the hill and you'll go through a beautiful wood with lots of places to enjoy the view.

Beautiful and calm park with stylish sculptures! Easy to get there by tram.

Not as good as expected. Never go with someone who rush. The best part is the nature

I loved this place so much I went back to enjoy our again. In spring the trees are shady and the birds noisy. Great to come across sculptures as we walked around. Fairly steep for those with strollers and mostly too steep for wheelchairs except around the restaurant. Loved the sculptures and loved the natural setting. Oh and the Turrell installation is SUPERB (though only open to the public on Sundays)

Astonishing view of city! Nice park but not for children age 2-4,because the view area(uphill) is not protected for their hight,so 3 seconds unattended child can fall down. Either child should sit on the stroller,or he/she supposed to be big enough to listen you and understand that this area,standing over there is dangerous. Moreover,I went there by tram,but tram has stairs which is difficult with stroller to get in. Thanks to kind people who helped me with that issue. So if you’re going alone with kids,just be aware of place,safety and tram. But if you’re going alone,or with friends just enjoy and relax with amazing view!

Nice park to walk around, breath fresh air and enjoy the panoramic view of Oslo. There are many weird looking statues and installations all over the place, some of them are really extravagant. And you must have a comfortable footwear, since moving around the park is physically intensive. All those uphill and downhill paths on gravel...

Another nice park near the city full of interesting sculptures by a variety of artists. Good little walk & a nice view of the city.
