Møllefossen Oslo

Møllefossen – The city waterfall

If you want to visit one of my favorite spots in Oslo, then take a walk along the river Akerselva until you reach the waterfall Møllefossen. If you start walking from the city center, it will take you about 30 minutes to reach the waterfall, and it is a nice 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 rush by. After dark, lights around the waterfall are lit, and it creates a kind of magical ambiance.

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

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!
