A Walk through Historical Stavanger

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $123.71 AUD / Adult
OverviewHide
Embrace the history of Stavanger in the only way it can truly be appreciated – a stroll through the cobbled streets of old town. Better known as Gamle Stavanger, this maze of narrow avenues remains dotted with wooden homes painted in the telltale white of the 18th and 19th centuries. Stop at the Norwegian Canning Museum for a glimpse of the days when canned fish was the city’s economic engine. Continue along the harbor to view its rustic wharf houses, and amble down Øvre Homegate, the most photographed street in Stavanger. Peruse the boutiques and artisan windows along the city’s main shopping avenues, and climb Stavanger’s old watchtower for sensational views of the harbor. Finally, visit the Stavanger Cathedral, built in the 12th and 13th centuries and one of the few Scandinavian churches to preserve its original design. Step back through the ages on a leisurely trek through Gamle Stavanger.
