To get to Sørengkaia, just follow the new harbour promenade past the Opera House. Oslos goal is to have the worlds longest harbour promenade in the area of a city.  Today (15th May 2019) the last bit – the financing and implementation of a 500-meter long “lid” covering European route E18 came into place.

Sørengkaia is one of the newest neighbourhoods by the Oslo fjord. The Sørenga peninsula stretches a good way out into the fjord in the Bjørvika area, and it is part of Oslo’s urban fjord development initiative. The area consists of residential complexes and restaurants at the water’s edge.
