Ankerbrua is a bridge located in the district of Grünerløkka, in the eastern end of Oslo, Norway.[1][2]

Ankerbrua was built over the Aker River (Akerselva). The former wooden bridge was constructed in 1874. It was replaced by the current granite structure in 1926. The bridge has four sculptures, one in each corner, designed by Norwegian sculptor and artist, Dyre Vaa. Cast from bronze in 1937, each figure represents a different Norwegian folk hero from Norwegian Folktales.[3] [4]
