This bay in the Oslo Fjord is surrounded by Akershus Fortress, which you can see on the right in the background, Oslo City Hall and Square and Aker Brygge, a shopping and restaurant area. To most people this bay and jetty is known as Aker Brygge and/or Rådhusplassen (City Hall Square). However, this area is also called Pipervika, a name that is said to have derived from the military musicians, drummers and pipers (flutists) who were located in the area, especially around the fortress in the 19th century

  1. mener jeg har lest om Pipervika i en eller annen skjønnlitterær bok (krim?)nylig, men husker ikke vilken.
