We stayed here in a private apt. for a long weekend, - beautiful surroundings, a little square with church nearby, an excellent bakery, a lovely cafe right opposite, - everybody seemed young, - although not true, it was just the flair of this area that made them all seem young and smiling;)

Grünerløkka was originally for factory workers sweating away in the factories that utilized the power from the Akerselva, a large stream with waterfalls deviding the city into East and West. I later years, it has become the hippest place for young, cool people to live and work. Most of the old apartments have been renovated, the parks are upgraded and there is an abundance of cafés and restaurants, mixed with second hand /vintage shops where you can find an old Dior dress or a classic, used hand bag. By the river you will find fleamarkets every weekend, and live music and concerts as well.
