Overview

Akerselva is a pleasant park with walking paths along the Akerselva river. Walks start eight kilometres upstream, by lake Maridalsvannet, Oslo's main source of drinking water, and end at Vaterland Park by the harbour (close to the Plaza Hotel). Discover traces of the industrial revolution in old buildings that were once mills, factories and workshops. Artisans' workshops are open to the public at Frysja. The Museum of Technology is just a stone's throw away from the walking paths. Fishing and swimming are possible at several spots along the route, as is canoe hiring towards the lower end of the river: take up the challenge of mooring elegantly while being observed by the in crowd at riverside jazz café Blå. Your reward: a lovely atmosphere and great music. For more details about the river and proposed walking routes , contact a tourist information center or see the Oslo kommune/Park- og Idrettsvesenet map of Akerselva.
