Once my wife got into the middle of the white cottages, I couldn't get her out. The area is beautiful and quiet and beckons you to stay! Absolutely a must see. Take the time to walk around these peaceful streets.

Old Stavanger is so ridiculously charming, it's almost nauseating. Be sure to walk along all the streets, not just the main one (Ovre Strandgate). I thought it would be busier but I went in the middle of the day on a Tuesday or Wednesday and...More

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!

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
