Description

Stavanger's Blue Promenade starts at the Badedammen outdoor swimming area from where you can enjoy views of beautiful Ryfylke. It continues past the Fiskepir terminal where the ferries depart for Tau and the express boats for Bergen.

Before you come to the Norwegian Petroleum Museum you should visit Magasin Blaa, a shopping centre where you can combine some pleasant shopping with the city's best view.

Further along the promenade the veteran boat "Gamle Rogaland" is moored. It was built in 1929 and was part of the coastal express service between Sandnes/Stavanger and Oslo during the 1930s. Since being restored, the ship is now Norway's largest preserved veteran boat.

As you enter the harbour area you will pass the cruise boats offering day trips to the mighty Lysefjord with the Pulpit Rock and Mount Kjerag. Or perhaps you would like to take a boat trip to Flor & Fjære's exotic gardens?

Once you arrive at the innermost part of the harbour it is time for a bite to eat, and make sure you do what the locals do: go to the fish market, buy a bag of cooked prawns, sit down by the quayside and eat them while enjoying the view of old waterfront buildings and the Valberg tower.

Walk further along the quay and visit the galleries around the harbour and in Old Stavanger, before finishing your promenade in Bjergsted Park, which houses the city's concert house where, if you're lucky, you can enjoy an outdoor concert in the park.
