Aker Brygge

Oslo’s lively waterfront area

Aker Brygge is Oslo’s lively waterfront area. By day, the lively shops and cafes attract locals and tourists alike and by night, the abundant bars and nightclubs provide plenty of amusement for party-goers. This is also a popular starting point for ferry rides to the small islands and communities within Oslofjord, including the Bygdøy peninsula, where you can find many of Oslo’s most popular museums.

Nearby Aker Brygge is City Hall (Rådhuset). Completed in 1950, the interiors of this seemingly plain building are with beautiful murals by Norwegian artists. Also in this neighbourhood is the Nobel Peace Centre, which showcases the works of Alfred Nobel and former Nobel Peace Prize laureates along with exhibitions focused on peace and conflict.

Nearby is the Akershus Fortress (Akershus Festning), built around the year 1299 to protect the city from intruders. During WWII, this protective symbol took a ghastly turn as the site where several Norwegian resistance fighters — and later the traitorous Norwegian chancellor — were exe-cuted. The Norwegian Resistance Museum (Norges Hjem-metfrontmuseum) and the Armed Forces Museum (For-svarsmuseum), both located on the fortress grounds, offer more details about this dark period as well as defence history dating back to the Viking era.
