Grünerløkka is the Greenwich Village of Oslo, sort of. It has a hip, slightly 'Bohemian,' off-beat feel, some cute restaurants & quaint houses & buildings; it's definitely worth at least an hour stroll if not longer. I stayed in the guest house of a friend's...More

No H&M in sight here! After wearing ourselves out on the main tourist shopping avenue, Grunerlokka was very welcome sight. Lots of cafes, vintage stores and independent businesses made for a great afternoon of wandering and shopping. Highly recommend the trip here.

This is great part of Oslo to wonder around with the ecclectic shops in Markveien along with the walk up both sides of the Akerselva river. Get up there to avoid the crowds down Aker Brygge.
