“Quiet corner in Stavanger, must see”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

Very nice area of Stavanger, with typical white wooden houses and flower pots everywhere. A must see.

“Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

This old town is lovely. Beautifully preserved and with a lovely "feel". The houses and shops are interesting,although there are a surprising number of very familiar chain stores. As always in Norway, everything is so clean and graffiti free and looks really well cared for. The Norwegians seem to have a great pride in their towns, villages and countryside.

“Old Stavanger”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

The white clapboard houses of the seafarers, cannery workers and craftsmen on the western side of the harbour are delightful. Wander along tiny cobbled streets, past lovely terraced gardens with picket fences to get a real sense of nineteenth century Stavanger.
On the opposite side of the harbour along Sansegata in the Skagen area there are wooden houses and shops selling a variety of local crafts, with restaurants and cafes. This is where you will find the Fjord sightseeing boats.

“Quaint and beautiful”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Narrow cobblestone streets lined with small white houses. All of the houses had beautiful gardens, flower boxes and potted plants. Very nice relaxing walk.
