  • The place is odd but very memorable. When you enter it’s practically pitch black and you can only make out a small portion of the frescoes. (They have very low level lights on them.) As your eyes....  more

  • Definitely worth a visit if you live in Oslo or in the surrounding area. It is only open on Sundays and you need to buy tickets in advance. Look at the website, all the information is there. It's very dark inside but your eyes adjust after a short while. It is a tiny room covered with fresco paintings depicting human life from conception till death, in dramatic and often quite erotic scenes.
  • One "secret" place in Oslo which is a must visit. There is no signs or panel, you will have to trust maps. The place itself has an outstanding acoustic and the murals are proper chef d'oeuvre Let your eyes adapt to the darkness and plunge into the art
