Aker Brygge, Oslo

(4.4/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Stretching along one of the arms of the Oslo Fjord in the location of a former shipyard, Aker Brygge creates a melting pot where business people, artists, musicians, and celebrities meet and mingle. Several workshop halls of the 19th-century shipyard have been turned into shopping areas with restaurants, art galleries, and a cinema, creating a city-within-a-city. Shop, have a drink, or taste some fresh seafood at the restaurants on the boats by the dock. A walk along the waterfront, with its mixture of old buildings and modern architecture, gives a general view into the history of Norwegian shipbuilding. Visit one of the small harbors, hop on a boat, and take a ride to one of the nearby islands. The area hosts several festivals. Plan your Aker Brygge visit and explore what else you can see and do in Oslo using our Oslo trip builder.

  • We visited on a Monday evening in mid-March. It was a cold, rainy day, which helped keep the crowds to a minimum. It's a nice place to walk, providing picturesque views of the water, the fortress, and...  more »
  • This was previously a mechanical workshop. Sites were turned into a great place where shops and good restaurants are collected. Lovely place and enjoy a beer on a hot day

  • I went around 4pm on a Sunday. Maybe this was the worst time, as it was all completely rammed out. People were queuing out of the door of Starbucks for goodness sakes. I'm sure it's nicer when quiet.  more »
