Hanami resides in a very modern building full of windows facing the harbor and serves up sushi and cooked dishes that come from the area, such as black cod, Norwegian lamb and pan-fried duck. It's worth the splurge, though it isn't too spendy.

Oslo Opera House, Norway

Oslo Opera House, Norway
Shereen Rayle
The Oslo Opera House is on the waterfront and a popular attraction in the city. The outside is angular and covered in marble and granite, making it appear as if it’s a part of the water. Take a tour of the building, enjoy it from the outside for free or take in a ballet or opera.

Overlook the harbor while enjoying a delicious and local seafood meal. Sundays they offer a two-course dinner for 345 Krone (around $45 US) or you can choose from a more affordable menu the rest of the week. Some specialties are pan-fried skate, king crab ravioli and grilled whale.

Go shopping along the fjord, but even more than that you can learn about shipbuilding and hop on a boat to one of the islands. Aker Brygge is a hotbed of entertainment, unique shopping opportunities and delicious dining all on the seaside.
