easter at ekeberg

I’ve been on holiday since Monday and been spending the Easter break in the city, at home, doing nothing. Knut and I decided to walk up to the Ekeberg Restaurant this afternoon and settled for some coffee and pastries after taking in views of Oslo from above the city. 


Taken midway the winding uphill path, Oslo is a work in progress.


The Opera House and the city.


The inner eastern city district, my part of town.


Office building Havnelageret in the foreground, the City Hall’s twin blocks to the left and the Royal Palace in the background.


A ship cruising its way in to Oslo.


At the terrace of Ekeberg Restaurant, affording fantastic views of the city and the islands on the Oslo fjord.


Expensive coffee and pastries. Boo!

    I hope Oslo soon comes out of constantly under construction – it really disturbed the view – but your pics where great!

    Good to know you’ve had a nice Easter Brake. We’ve been in the forest hunting the Bunny Eggs today :-)

      A few more years of waiting, Renny, as you know there are several architectural projects soon to rise in this area. Thanks for the kind words!

      Ah, I’ve emptied my easter eggs of its chocolates and goodies early on, hahaha!

    Oslo looks so modern and industrialized compared to Copenhagen.

    You look really thin on the second to the last pic.
