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 ship yard, 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 one of the most recent areas in Oslo: characterised by innovative architecture, it 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.
