Bispevika Nord consists of multiple commercial and residential buildings and makes up Oslobukta’s retail and cultural hub. The project Vannkunsten was awarded Building of the Year in 2021. Bispevika Nord is Oslobukta’s retail and cultural hub. Operagata is packed with shopping, retail, and names like Holzweiler and Thune. With an emphasis on more practical retail like Jernia on Dronning Eufemias Gate, this is becoming an exciting and dynamic shopping district.

Situated along the canals between the docks, Kulturgaten givers visitors the sense of strolling along the canals of Venice or the fishermen’s cabins in Lofoten. Restaurants, galleries, and experiences are all packed together here.

The natural hub of Bispevika is Stasjonsallmenningen, an open plaza right between Munch Brygge and Bispevika. Here, visitors can enjoy a wide selection of food and drink at the fjord. Among these are Maaemo, which has been offered three Michelin stars and offers world-class food.

The area also features offices and apartments in the storeys above street level. A mere five-minute walk from Oslo S, Bispevika is the natural gateway to Oslobukta, which connects Middelalderparken and Barcode. Bispevika Nord consists of 38 premises with various restaurants, retail shops, and cultural experiences.
