Kvadraturen is the area between Akershus Fortress and Grensen, Jernbanetorget, and Egertorget. This was King Christian IV’s town from the Renaissance. Several well-preserved buildings from the 17th century can be seen in Kvadraturen.

The oldest building in Kvadraturen area (to the right) is called “Rådmanngården”  – The city managers house –  It was built for the city manager  Lauritz Hansen in 1626. The yellow building (left) was built around 1700.
