Description

Stavanger has the finest and best preserved wooden house settlement in Northern Europe. This tasty city walk starts with a walk through this charming area of Old Stavanger. Right in the heart of Old Stavanger is the Norwegian Canning Museum. You get to visit the museum to learn the art of smoking and canning brisling sardines. In addition you get to taste this delicate food which was the life blood of Stavanger in a bygone era.

The tour then goes along the harbour area and takes another stop at the Fish market. What do Norwegians eat today? We get to taste delicious salmon and herring. Even shrimps if they are available. The tour continues via Øvre Holmegate with its multi-coloured old houses and shops. This street has become quite a tourist attraction. The last stop is outside the well known butcher's shop Idsøe, acknowlegded for their high quality produce. You get to taste some of their specialities.

By seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting and touching, this tour will give you a lively glimpse into the history of food in Stavanger.
