 Oslofjord

Tjuvholmen is sticking out from Aker Brygge into the Oslofjord. It is located east of Filipstad and south of Vika. The area was bought by the shipyard Akers Mekaniske Verksted in the mid 19th century, who planned to build a drydock there. Instead, it was bought by the municipality in 1914, and transferred to the port authority in 1919. They built docks and artificial land, increasing the area from 5 to 33 hectares.

The area have approximately 1,200 apartments and it is part of the Fjord City urban renewal program. This program has seen the opening of several art galleries, amongst them the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art and the Gallery Haaken.
