We are walking along the harbour, from the Operahouse to Aker Brygge and Tjuvholmen. Passing through the oldest part of Oslo, Kvadraturen, Christiania Torg, Akershus Fortress and the cruiseharbour. Strolling along the waterfront where the old elegant sailships are docked besides the cruiseships visiting Oslo. On our way we will pass by one of the city's landmarks, the City Hall (Rådhuset). The east tower houses 49 bells that can be heard chiming throughout the harbour area playing every 15 minutes.

Aker brygge is built around an abandoned shipyard and is bustling and vibrant day and night. Admire its marvellous architecture that blends new and old buildings - here you can go shopping or enjoy the thriving life along the waterfront. Having a delicious seafood meal at one of the many good restaurants.

We will continue the walk to Tjuvholmen, which is the newest of Oslo's boroughs. The area is characterised by an intriguing architectural diversity and unique outdoor areas.
