Aker Brygge and Tjuvholmen

Aker Brygge and Tjuvholmen

Aker Brygge is a lively and very popular area situated right by the fjord. It has seen an enormous development since the days when it used to be a shipyard, up until the 80s. Now visitors and locals come here for shopping, al fresco dining at one of the countless restaurants and bistros, or just to take a stroll along the waterfront. Tjuvholmen is an area located on a peninsula adjacent to Aker Brygge, between Pipervika och Filipstad. It has also gone through many changes, having been a dock, shipyard, and warehouse area, and is today characterised by innovative architecture and given over to apartments and trendy restaurants. Tjuvholme also hosts many art galleries, a sculptures park, and a city beach. Here you'll also find the Astrup Fearnley Museum, housed in the spectacular wooden building designed by Renzo Piano.
