From a boring place it is turning into a picturesque neighborhood. Colorful buildings and coffee shops and trendy restaurants. While walking around it’s nice to visit this small neighborhood especially on such a sunny day like today

A quirky and lively spot in a quirky friendly town. Good for coffee and a spot of relaxing while you’re sightseeing. Afternoon is best as nothing really opens early. We visited on a Sunday and had trouble finding a meal, coffee & drinks seem to...More

This street is a great place to experience the life and joy of the people in Stavanger. The street is famous for its colourful houses and niche bars. Truly worth a visit.

This colorful street is a must-see in a nearly complete white city. Be aware: in Norway shops/bars don't open until 11am. So don't bother waking up early to see this street. It's much nicer to see when everything is open in the afternoon.

I haven't thought that walking through such a colorful street would inspire the artist within me. Thanks to all the arts and colors combined, it makes me wanting to start drawing something before I go on a bigger scale.

You can find the most colourful houses here. Most Stavanger houses are white but these are very colourful. Most are restaurants which have heating outside for cooler days.

So much attraction of independent shops. Also good places to have a drink and bite to eat. Can not be missed, very to the fjord and the city centre. Always activity at any time or weather.

If you want to spend 90 Krone on a beer or 50 Krone on a coffee sold in a clown mug - as I was when I visited - then go ahead. Seriously overpriced and over rated spot. If you sit outside at weekends /...More

Visited here a couple times whilst in Stavanger - the brightly coloured buildings hold a number of interesting, quirky bars good for having an afternoon coffee or some evening drinks.
