Every year on December 10, the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded during a ceremony at the Oslo City Hall in Oslo, Norway. Located in the center of downtown Oslo, the modern structure captures the history and culture of Norway.

The brick facade of Oslo City Hall is decorated with historical themes. Two tall towers and an enormous clock echo the design of traditional northern-European town halls.
