Overview
More
The two small roads Damstredet and Telthusbakken are found just below the medieval church Gamle Aker kirke. This is a charming and pictoresque part of town with well-preserved and inhabited wooden houses from the late 18th and early 19th century. The allotment gardens on the south side of Telthusbakken give the area a countryside atmosphere.

Two short streets north of the city centre and just to the west of Grunerlokka stand out for the older architecture and winding cobblestone. Definitely worth the stroll.

Strolled over this way after a short walk from our hotel (10 minutes from Oslo Central Station). While these are just two streets with houses on them, they are historical (over 200 years old) and contain beautiful landscapes and photography opportunities. Since it is not...More

Pretty but very much overhyped for what it is. We expected a lot more for what had been written but alas we were wrong. Nice original style wooden buildings though.

Be ready for some hills, but so cute and worth it. Beer garden and park at the bottom are a perfect way to end the walk.

Well, it is not a huge district, just a little street with almost 200 years old houses. It worths a visit while you are near. The street and the houses are cute and picturesque.

It's a trip to the past. Very nicely preserved wooden houses, friendly stray cats and a lovely frozen (-6 C currently) tiny "lake" to welcome you at the entrance. Strongly recommend!
