Some theorists believes that the name Oslo means "The meadow beneath the ridge", while others believe it has its meaning from the old word "áss" which meant God, and that the name Oslo means "Gods Field". Nonetheless, my little journey starts at "Bryn" which is in the lower- midst of one of Oslos hillsides, and where "Old Oslo' starts. It is an easy and very accessible walk that follows the "Alna River", the river that once gave work to so many of the citizens of Oslo. Today it is an urban, exotic river, with the purpose of pumping joy. You will pass alongside waterfalls, cross over a suspension bridge, and walk through medieval woods, all while you will get a great view of some of old Oslos industrial giants. Once out of the medieval woods, we enter "Kværnerbyen" in "Lodalen", one of Oslos last surviving industrial areas. We are now down at " The meadow beneath the ridge", and together with realtors, Oslos city planners have done a fabulous job of creating this area into a small municipal where families now live and thrive among side well kept and restored buildings and memorials. We will stroll through this neighborhood where you can get a close up view of a thriving life where old meets new and the citizens go on about their daily lives. From here we will walk the street of St Halward ( the saint of Oslo), down to Oslos Medieval ruins park, where our journey ends.
Il tuo host
I simply love my hometown and I have grown more and more fascinated in the fact that it is such a big city with somewhat a small population. That is a fantastic combination and as I grew up, I kept exploring the different parts of Oslo. I discovered places and spaces that were both very urban, rough, but idyllic, quiet but yet so active. As a matter of fact, some of them so active during the 1800 and 1900 that they are actually a big part of the reason why Oslo is one of the wealthiest metropolitan areas in Europe. When I was still growing up, some of the areas were inaccessible. But in 2011 the city completed a careful renovation, with accessibility to landmarks and untouched nature Some of this renovation, created an urban, medieval jungle. Wild nature mixed with old industrial heavy weighters. In the heart of the city!
