Walked through here while in town. It is a pretty area with old historic buildings that have been kept up nicely. It's right off from where the cruise ships dock, and near the main tourist area with shops and restaurants. Worth a visit while in...More

Lots of gorgeous old houses to wander past. Lovely harbour and small market selling all manner of goods from budget to very much not budget items.

Nice place to wander around to shop, drink, eat or look at the sea! Take a boat trip to the Fjords near the old town or pop into a museum all close by.

Street Art in Stavanger, it’s a very nice place but expensive. Would like to visit again. I loved the street art.
