The coastal city of Stavanger ranks among Norway's top culinary destinations, its fine restaurants and food fairs an increasingly popular attraction with impassioned foodies from around the globe. Despite its reputation as one of Europe's energy capitals, the harbor city remains one of the country's most sophisticated cultural centers, its quaint streets filled with museums and galleries. Big tourist crowds usually congregate in Stavanger's old town, a compact area known for containing nearly 200 historical wooden houses. Farther away from this busy district, the city offers plenty of well-maintained parks and gardens, which are used as both recreational areas and outdoor concert venues. Make your own Stavanger vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Norway trip website.
