Møllefossen – The city waterfall

If you want to visit one of my favourite spots in Oslo, then take a walk along the river Akerselva until you reach the waterfall Møllefossen. If you start walking from the city centre, it will take you about 30 minutes to reach the waterfall, and it is a lovely walk away from the hustle of town.

It is situated in a park area just below Beyerbrua. The waterfall is most beautiful from the lower part, but it is also fascinating to stand close to the fence at the top and watch the vigorous water bursts down the river. After dark, lights around the waterfall are lit, and it creates a kind of magical ambience.

There are steps on one side of the waterfall so that you can walk right next to it. There is a bench on the top of the waterfall, just below the red house Hønselouisa, where you can sit down and enjoy the sound from the waterfall. During winter, you can see different shapes of ice sculptures as some of the water freezes.  

Every time I have new visitors, I make sure they visit this spot. All of my foreign visitors have appreciated this beautiful waterfall in the city – and I hope you will too!
