The old city has whitewashed buildings from the past 3 centuries. All are well maintained and many have beautiful gardens. It's enjoyable to walk the residential streets to enjoy the varied architedture.

The cobblestone streets with 200 year old houses were a treat to explore. It was really helpful to an experienced guide lead us along as we learned so much.

There’s not much to do here, except walk around and look; but it’s a nice place for a stroll. The houses are adorned with flowers and the residents must be very patient - I don’t know how I would feel about tourists (among them, hordes...More

We enjoyed a pleasant walk through this section of Stavanger. The wooden houses and colorful gardens were charming. It’s apparent that the residents are very proud of their historic neighborhood. A must while in Stavanger.

The old town of Stavanger is over the main harbor. All the small houses are very clean, maintained and in good conditions. The view with the old buildings and the different flowers is amazing.
