Aker Brygge Harborfront
Submitted by: Ethan Kent
A former industrial zone converted into a vibrant waterfront district.
Once a shipbuilding area, Aker Brygge is now a vibrant and densely packed new district. Its public promenade is one of the best-used public spaces anywhere, an area for strolling that has become the focal point of the harbor and the entire city of Oslo. Tourists and locals alike enjoy the cafes, playgrounds, sittable steps, engaging public art, floating restaurants, and small fishing boats that sell their catch at the dock.
