The street need to be upgraded at the bottom half. Better shops, cleanness, take away beggers etc. The upper half is much better, and fancier of course.

Like most big cities Oslo has a pedestrian street, but this one is worth the walk. It has great shops of all kinds, not just over priced big chain stores, but smaller boutiques as well. restaurants and bars that stay open well into the night. This street is also where you will find many large important historical sites worth seeing.... More

The hotel was there, and we got the best photos at sunset. Walk all the way to the end of the road and take your photos from there for the best shots!

Looks more like a town main road than a capital one. Yes, a few shops but nothing very impressive as you would expect.

This street runs 10-12 blocks through the heart of the city from the Central Station to the Royal Palace. The eastern half is a pedestrian walkway lined with quaint shops, restaurants, and street performers. We also saw two small parades that seemed to appear out of nowhere.
