The topic of this tour is the current rapid urban development taking place in Oslo. We meet up in front of Meny Supermarket at Grønland Torg, close to where the first industrial development started. The guide will explain the difficult life of the workers at the time. We will discover how the city blends new buildings with old ones, and – crossing the bridge to the Barcode – we will discern the contrasts: In Bjørvika, we will see the newest architecture and learn about the new Munch Museum, the New Deichman Library, the Opera House, and of course the concept behind the city development in Bjørvika.
The tour lasts for 90 minutes, starting at Grønland Torg and finishing at the New Deichman Library. Lunch may be had in one of the cafés in the Library or in the vicinity. NB: Please remember comfortable walking shoes!
