On my last day I took a walk along the river Akerselva which flows through Oslo.
Akerselva was the cradle of Norway’s industrialisation in the second half of the 19th century. Back then the river gave power to saw mills, textile factories and mechanical workshops.
Today Akerselva plays a valuable role as a “green lung”; a popular recreational area with green parks and luxuriant nature. Many of the old factory buildings along the river have been refurbished and now house cafés, galleries, offices and schools. (Visitoslo)
This lovely little house is a café and you can enjoy some coffee and cake right next to the waterfall.
Shortly after meeting these ladies I left the river and strolled around Grünerløkka, its cafés and vintage stores.
