offers guests a relaxing and indulgent experience in the heart of the city, with easy access to Old Stavanger and other local attractions.
Places to visit in Old Stavanger
White wooden houses, which vary in age from 100 to 300 years old, dominate the landscape of Old Stavanger. As a result, visitors to the area can bask in a local atmosphere that feels traditional, but still part of modern Stavanger. After World War Two, Old Stavanger was nearly destroyed and replaced by modern buildings, but saved by an architect called Einar Heiden.
Today, Old Stavanger is a trendy place to live among locals and attracts many visitors every year. In summer, cruise ships moor in the adjacent harbour and the Norwegian Canning Museum shows tourists what a typical canning factory looked like in the 1920s. Today, there is very little commercial activity but visitors can enjoy several walks in Old Stavanger, including around the harbour, to Bjergsted Park and Hermetikk Museum.
