Gamle Stavanger is the petite old town at the heart of Stavanger. The city’s characteristic white wooden buildings (the longest wood-built street in Europe!) in this popular residential area house a rich variety of galleries, shops, and bars, all tucked away on narrow, cobbled streets.
1/ All under one roof: the hip Ostehuset is not only a coffee shop and restaurant, but also sells a huge range of the finest-quality foods. Its menu never ceases to amaze.
2/ Canning museum: Stavanger may be best known for its oil industry, but canning fish is another major driver of the city’s economy. Don’t miss out on the smoked fish, fresh from the smokehouse!
3/ Appreciate some art: behind the white wooden facade of Neo Galleri, there’s a charming art gallery with changing exhibits for viewers and buyers.
