The Oslofjord area, including the harbour, are a lovely region that show the wealth of the Norwegian country and the beautiful nature surounding the capital.

But near the Akerskus festing, a memorial reminds of a sad part of history, when in April 1990, only three months after its launch, a fire onboard the 142 metres long ferry caused the death of 159 people when it landed in the harbour of Oslo.

At the posted coordinates, you find a memorial featuring this catastrophe.
