Through the centre of Oslo, from Maridalsvannet to the Oslo Fjord, runs the Akerselva river – a popular recreation area with a vibrant history. The river is eight kilometres long and passes waterfalls, swimming spots, fishing grounds, forested areas and wildlife.
Akerselva's most spectacular waterfall is located by the Beier Bridge. Other famous attractions linked to the river are Bjølsen Rolling Mill, Lilleborg Factories, Aamot Bridge, Hønse-Lovisa's House and Nedre Foss.
