Interesting and informative walk past the old warehouses and assorted other wooden buildings. A lot of them have been restored and there is a good contrast between the restored and unrestored buildings. They sit beside the river and form a very picturesque part of the...More

We walked through this area as part of the 5km city walk outlined on the tourist map. Lovely area, full of beautiful old buildings and alongside the river. A myst if visiting the city.

I fell in love with Bakklandet at first sight, it's so calm, beautiful and charming. Even though I only had time for a short walk, but would love to come back.
