Start with a stroll through Gamle Stavanger, the picturesque old part of town consisting of more than 170 wooden houses Most of them are small and painted white. The houses were built at the end of the 18th and early 19th century and are now protected by a special preservation law.
Continuing by foot you will pass the harbour area with its quaint fish and farmers market, to Stavanger Cathedral, for a guided tour inside. The Cathedral, built of stone in the 12th and 13th century, is one of the few churches in Scandinavia that has kept its original design.
You will pass shopping streets on your way to Valbergtårnet, the old watch and fire tower built around 1850 - 1853. From here you can enjoy a view of the city before returning to the harbour.
