Hønse Lovisas hus is a part of the Industrial museum in Oslo named after a great woman who took care of the girls that used to work at the factories along the Akerselva river.

Hønse Lovisas hus is a part of the Industrial museum in Oslo and has taken its name after a character in the play Ungen which was created in 1911. Hønse Lovisa was a great woman who took care of the girls that used to work at the factories along the Akerselva river. A sculpture of the girls can be found on the bridge right across Hønse Lovisas hus. The house itself was built in the 1800s and has been the home of workers, as well as a warehouse and a shop.

Today, it is a fantastic tree house cafe under the name Anne på landet. The cafe overlooks the foss at the Akerselva river. Its interior is very welcoming and warm, with a cosy fireplace next to the bar, and a few tables in the room next to it. The walls are filled with posters with the history of the place and, although there is not much variety on the menu, everything they have is of great quality. Trying their waffles is a must! I have always enjoyed sitting there and looking at the amazing view, especially in the summer! It is definitely a gem that combines great history, art, and great snacks.

Isdammen – A meeting place in nature

Isdammen is known as a fishing lake in the summer months, but one can also go ice skating there during the winter (as the lakes in Oslo are usually frozen because of the low temperatures, as one would expect).
