Street art, the Dutch Quarter, rail biking, and an idyllic nature await in Flekkefjord, the westernmost city in Southern Norway.
Midway between Kristiansand in Southern Norway and Stavanger in Fjord Norway, you’ll find the charming coastal town Flekkefjord. Back in the day, parts of the city had strong trade relations with the Netherlands, and a lot of Dutch people moved here.
Today, this area is called Hollenderbyen, or The Dutch Quarter in English, and is a must on your stroll through the city. Look for treasures in niche shops or enjoy a cup of happiness at a café. And don’t forget to admire the picturesque streets.
Flowers decorate the entrance to many of the wooden houses, but that is not the only splash of colour you’ll see. Some walls are adorned with spectacular murals and street art, adding a funky element of contrast to the buildings.
When it’s time to explore the surrounding areas, you can soak up some “vitamin sea” on the island Hidra, hike to the potholes at Brufjell, or go rail biking at Flekkefjordbanen.
