“Another beautiful island right outside Oslo. Take the island ferry with your regular public transportation ticket (zone 1). You can swim or go for a walk, and there's a great café / restaurant (Gressholmen Kro) with beautiful outdoor seating among the trees and overlooking the water! ”

Garden
“This area is known for its old tree-houses, which was mostly built before Rodeløkka became part of Christiania in 1878. It is really colorful and a nice invironment. More than half of those who lived at Rodeløkka in the old days were either craftsmen in the construction industry or workers who could build houses themselves. Almost all of them came from farms outside the city. Many had dismantled and brought their house when they moved. ”
