Vikaterrassen is a pedestrian street just west of the city center, with a cluster of shops and services, restaurants, cafés and cultural offerings. Vikaterrassen is located in the heart of the historic Vika district and was re-opened in 2018 as a car-free, pedestrian based urban space, flanked by historic buildings with iconic architecture. In 2021 the architecturally unique building VIA Vika opened, connecting Vikaterrassen to Aker Brygge and the National Museum with an even longer pedestrian based urban space – packed with shops, restaurants and even Vika’s very own food court; VIA Village Food Court.
Shopping and services
In Vikaterrassen you will find shops and service providers with high levels of expertise and unique offerings. For the well-dressed men and women out there you can visit Cavour’s flagship stores for both men and women. If you are interested in interiors and fashion, Illums Bolighus is a must-visit, packed with design furniture and interior. Don’t forget to visit the prize winning hair salon Escape Hairdressing, the unique underwear shop Next to Nothing and the optician Interoptik.
Restaurants and cafés
Whether you are longing for a barista made coffee and a sweet snack or a Michelin Star restaurant experience, Vikaterrassen got you covered! For dining visit Valentes for a authentic Italian experience or Sabi Sushi for some amazing Japanese cuisine. For the one of a kind experience, visit Sabi Omakase Oslo – our very own Michelin Star restaurant.
For that cozy café vibe you can visit Baker Hansen or Kaffebrenneriet, or if you want to take that energy level up a beat, visit Joe & The Juice for a healthy smoothie or a coffee and a sandwich.
If you’re in the mood for a glass of wine or beer, accompanied by live music (not all, but most day’s), visit our tiny little bar Juret.
Vika has an important place in Oslo’s cultural life, where our next door neighbor, Oslo Concert Hall is one of Oslo’s biggest stages for classical, jazz and pop. Right next door you’ll also find Vika Kino, a cinema with a unique offering of movies, short films and events. If you’re in the mood for more culture, the Norwegian National Museum is just a few hundred meters away, as well as the small and unique museum for world renowned author (and a Vika-resident in his time) Henrik Ibsen.
