After a rest break back at the hotel we walked to the Oslo fjord. The large open space in front of the town hall was fenced off with a sound stage and lots of portable buildings inside the enclosure. From the signage this was for Oslo’s celebration of Gay Pride.
Once past the ferry piers we started to explore the Aker Brygge.
We skipped the shopping mall and instead joined the crowds simply walking along in the sunshine.
Alongside the fjord were the remains of the original dock area, to our right were restaurants and above them several floors of apartments.
Further along came across various sculptures!
And right at the end another horse sculpture.
The floating restaurant, Lectern, was being closed up as we watched. The good news was that their ice cream stall was still open. We both had salted caramel and even at NK 50 each these are well worth it!
By the time we had made our way past the town hall, the parliament building and back to the hotel it was definitely time to get a rest.
The computer controlled lifts had tablets that we used to call the lifts. The tablet then pointed to which lift was coming!
One of the paintings in the room celebrate Oslo’s architecture and echoed the hanging lamp.
On the wall was this dog and on the table a wooden hand.

Best breakfast EVER and a perfect location in Central Oslo
We stayed in this central Oslo hotel for three nights. The location of the hotel is perfect close to the railway station and to everywhere we wanted to visit. Our room had some quirky décor, an excellent bathroom with walk-in shower, lifts that were computer controlled and came exactly when you needed them, view from our room this visit was across a to other parts of the hotel (so no view really), BUT was quiet as we didn’t face the traffic and trams, very little hanging space for coats, two shelves and two drawers for clothes (we lived out of the suitcase). The breakfast was absolutely FABULOUS, more choice than I’ve ever seen at anywhere else in the world
