A mystery iron gate, wonder what’s inside.. the roof reminds the boys of a cellar, it feels a bit creepy…

Yeah, Heffanutt found some greenery in this street too – a plant and a forgotten Christmas decoration (?!?).  You always have to have something green according to Heffanutt.

The streets oldest house built in 1640. Originally the building had one floor, the second floor was added in 1816.

A dark green door with a small opening underneath, The Ant King tried to control his curiosity, but it was in vain, he had to go closer…

One of the pros of being tiny, or maybe not, depends on how you look at it, The Ant King could look inside underneath the door. A nervous Heffanutt, dragged him away at the same time as he took this photo, sorry, it’s a bit blurry.

Feeling tiny between these two buildings, the construction works, although at the other side of the street feels as close as they could touch it

The street is only 600 meters, but it looks like several miles… A long walk. Hefanutt and The Ant King are drawn to the tower far away

Prinsens gate runs parallel to Karl Johans gate. Prinsens gate is just over 600 meters long from Wessels Plass in the west to Dronning Eufemias gate in the east.  An important turning point in street history is the city fire in April 1858 where several quarters burned down, after the fire, several buildings with three and four floors were built instead of the previous two.
