Lots of wooden houses. Well kept and lovely flowers everywhere. Visit the Worker's Museum which is free. It is very interesting to see how people lived. Also they have a lovely cafe providing drinks, cakes and freshly made waffles.

Old Stavanger is a lovely place to visit for a couple of hours. Very quaint and pleasant. As it is within walking distance of the town centre it's easy to get to. A nice reminder of old Norway.

Old Stavanger is a beautiful place to stroll around! Beautiful white houses and gorgeous views. Also, we visited the beautiful cathedral built in the 12th century. There happened to be a hymn concert that we attended. Beautiful music!

Quaint, sweet etc Gamle is all those things. Another small quarter worth a morning’s sightseeing. Teeny little workers cottages with cheerful pot gardens & cobbled streets. Situated up behind the wharf area (restaurant & bar strip) and handy to the beautiful Domkirken & lake park,...More

The old town of Stavanger is very characteristic of small towns in Europe. Pretty little wooden houses usually painted in white with colourful flowers adorning each home. Cobble stoned streets to walk on and quaint little cafes serving delicious cakes, muffins and milk shakes. You...More

Beautiful houses very well preserved with small gardens everywhere and a nice view to the harbor from high.

This is an easy walk from the heart of the harbor and can take only 20 mins or less to complete unless you walk slowly and take a million photos like I did. A lovely experience and not to be missed.

Hallo Matt. Stavanger Old Town is in the middle of Stavanger itself. It is easily visible because it is perched on a hilltop looking over the harbour. If you get lost, ask anyone. It will not be more than a 7 minute walk or... More
