Old wooden houses are all restored and make it very interesting to walk on narrow cobblestone streets, admire the architecture and flowers. Each house has hanging baskets displayed in every imaginable variety

A nice taste of an older part of Norway. The houses and paths are historic and lovely to see. A bit thin on history but there are a few things to see.

Lovely scenery and pretty houses. Can be steep for older people or people with pushchairs. Lots of cobblestones.

Nice to see a historic area being preserved and without all of the tourist junk shops everywhere. Was refreshing to walk the clean streets and feel the history all around you.

If you are in Stavanger you have to walk through this Gamle Stavanger with his white houses. It is a very nice neighbourhood with perfect maintained houses with lots of flowers.

Nice section with old wooden houses & cobbled streets, quite close to cruise ship docking. Little disappointed to find there were no shops & the whole area itself was pretty small.

As virtually everywhere in Norway, it is the fjord that is the main attraction – but you will not waste your half an hour reaching this part of the town. It is really charming if you manage to avoid the first wave of cruise ship...More

This section of the city gives you a good insight into traditional wooden houses of Norway. They are very well maintained. Also many flowers in tiny front gardens or hanging baskets. The cobbled, hilly streets might not be suitable for everyone, but it's well worth...More

Hallo Matt. Stavanger Old Town is in the middle of Stavanger itself. It is easily visible because it is perched on a hilltop looking over the harbour. If you get lost, ask anyone. It will not be more than a 7 minute walk or... More

Hi, it was raining here in Stavanger in the last 3 days and it was 10 Celcius degrees yesterday. So this is not really a "pool and sunbath" destination. But don't give up your plans so soon! The weather is changing extremely... More

Old Stavanger is really close, and reachable eventually with a wheel chair. It's just on the other side of where the cruise boats are staying.
