Oslo is very fortunate in having a long promenade with lots to see and do along it. It links many of the main sites together e,g. The new National Museum with the Opera House and Munch Museum

A splendid promenade from the trikk station to the tip of Tjuvholmen.

Stroll to the gleaming opera house, then all the way along the harbour to the Astrop Fearnley MOMA, and beyond to the beach park.

The promenade has one after another restaurants, bronze statuary of nautical themes, and ice cream kiosks.

Stop for lunch or dinner at the many seafood establishments, or a drink on the floating lounges.

This is the best place in Oslo for people-watching, enjoying the Oslofjord vistas, bird-watching, and a morning jog. A definite must when visiting Oslo!

What a lovely walking area around the waterfront! For browsing it was the best, enjoyed the sea smell and sounds. Was initially looking to buy ferry tickets and didn’t readily see signs directly me where to do that. Had to ask a local person. Maybe a highly visible sign in English about where to buy which kinds of ferry tickets?

We took a long walk and enjoyed this pleasant area. There were a lot of places to eat and some interesting local businesses to keep our interest. The fjord is lovely to look at.

We understood that the harbour area had been fairly recently renovated and it certainly made for a lovely walk with views of the Oslo fjord past historic ships and pleasant cafes

A beautiful area right on the harbor. Lots of great museums. The food trucks in front of the Peace museum are delicious. Highly recommended.

The harbour is a nice day is just lovely. It is great to stroll around with plenty of restaurants. It's great with the castle and fort one side and brand new National Museum and he Nobel Peace Museum on the other side.

The really touristy and interesting area is between Tjuvholmen and Munch museum. Beautiful buildings, with great architecture, a mixture of old and new, restaurants, bars, places where you can stop at a sauna and a swim in the sea (for those who are not afraid of cold water). You can stop at the port, in Rådhusplassen, from where you can go on a fjord cruise (about 2 hours) or you can take the B1 waterbus line to the islands.

Good shops and cafes, although shopping a little expensive. A stroll around the harbour is lovely. We then went on the ferry to Oslo Fjord as many ferries depart from this area
