Damstredet and Telthusbakken
Popular for leisure walks, these cobblestone avenues feature historic, painted-wood homes. Charming and picturesque part of central Oslo with well-preserved and inhabited wooden houses from the late 1700s and the 1800s. Damstredet is a cobbled street with wooden houses from the first half of the 19th century. The street runs between Akersveien and Fredensborgveien and is just 160 metres long. Telthusbakken is located between Maridalsveien and Akersveien, just below the medieval church Gamle Aker kirke. On one side of the 260-metre street lies a series of small wooden houses, and on the other side is a large allotment garden area, Egebergløkka. Along the gardens you can walk the romantic Kjærlighetsstien (“The Love Trail”).
