Get a taste of Norway's past at Old Stavanger, the city's historical district and home to one of the largest collections of preserved wooden homes in the region. Dating mainly from the 18th and early 19th centuries, these Stavanger homes characterize the architectural style that once existed nationwide. The cobbled streets wind between whitewashed historical homes, numbering 173 in all. Discover the multitude of craft stores and shops that now give life to the area. Be sure to stop by the local canning museum, which demonstrates the inner workings of a typical factory in the neighborhood at the dawn of the 20th century.

  • A lovely area by the port and an easy stroll. Lots of shops and restaurants to enjoy. Don't miss the shops with handcrafted items.  more »
  • Most of the houses in Old Stavanger are white, but some have gså other colors. It has also statues that tell about times past, while the houses still stood here. This is an area with a certain degree of charm.

  • Wonderful little houses, the House of a former fishing village almost every tale. Nice walk can be done in the past, which is perhaps now more beautiful than when you're just fishermen. Great controversy between the roofs of houses reflected in the small megpillntható giant tengerjárok contrast.
