From free thinkers, musicians and artists to parks, vintage shops and cafes, there is plenty to discover in the diverse city district of Grunerlokka. A traditional working class district from its factory days, this city is fast becoming a vibrant, artsy neighborhood. Go behind numerous old industrial buildings lining the Akerselva River and see the explosion of designer shops springing up.
Walking around town is an adventure in itself; meander past graffiti-covered houses and down a narrow street and look up to be greeted by a giant chandelier! Climb up the quaint street of Damstredet, where you’ll definitely want to stop to take a photo of the charming hillside houses. Then check in with the dynamic trio: Ibsen, Bjørnson and Munch at the Our Savior’s Cemetery.
If you are craving a cup of java, you are in luck, as you are never more than several steps from a coffee shop.
Grunerlokka is the childhood home of Edvard Munch, a famous Norwegian painter best known for his painting The Scream.
