De oude workshops van Akers Mekaniske Verksted aan de kust onder het stadhuis zijn veranderd in een van de meest populaire gebieden - vooral 's zomers - om te winkelen en uit te gaan. Er zijn plekken waar je kunt eten en winkelen, kunstgalerieën, theaters, een IMAX bioscoop en gewone bioscopen. Een wandeling langs het water is een goede manier om een fijne zomerdag af te sluiten. Neem de tram 10 of 15 of loop vanaf het Akershus fort langs een speeltuin en meerdere ijskraampjes.
