Located downtown as the central attraction of Haugesund, the CIty Hall is a very pretty building, at the top of the central park where one can walk around, sit and relax surrounded by the pretty monuments, statues, fountains and flowers in the park.

Even without anything here in terms of activities and such, then the town hall of Haugesund is a beautiful building that is most definitely worth a visit, and it makes for a beautiful backdrop for taking photos. Nice, though simplistic, architecture, but the construction as...More

For a small town, Haugesund has an impressive town hall built in the classical style of the 1920s. We found the main door open and took a peek at the mural paintings and decorations inside. The building appeared to be empty of people.

It's really close to the town's shopping mall, Markedet. There is also a bus stop right behind. It looks really nice in the snow. Only city hall in Norway to be of it's colour.

You'll need to go online to the council's Web site, it's a working town hall I'm not sure that tours are offered?
