It opened in 1901, and was built by the speed skating club Kristiania Skøiteklub. In 1914, the stadium was moved to its current position, due to the 1914 Jubilee Exhibition. At the inaugural race in 1914, two speed skating world records were set by Oscar Mathisen, in 500 m and 1,500 m. In 1928, Oslo Municipality took over responsibility for the stadium.
Frogner stadion was the most important skating arena in Norway until 1940. A long series of championships were held at Frogner stadion, both in figure skating and in speed skating. A total of 23 speed skating world records have been set at the stadium (including some not officially listed). Seventeen of the records from Frogner are listed among the official ISU world records in speed skating.

Not expensive if you have your own skates, but rental prices are high. No barrier around the edge to hold onto if you're just starting out. Plenty of penguins for youngsters just starting out, except during busy times when demand is high.
Went ice skating with my 4yo. Was fun. Inexpensive. Ice was good even after a bit of rain earlier in the day.
