Streetart in the Geopark playground


Welcome to the Stavanger, Norway. Cozy, old fashioned cobble stone roads. An almost 900 year old cathedral. The colorful street ("Fargegaten"). Cruise boats that dock in the middle of town. Festivals including food (Happy Food), music, comedy and sports. The oil capitol of Norway. The gateway to fjords and Pulpit Rock  and Kjerag. Stavanger has a lot to offer.



The picture above is from the Geopark, a childrens playground right next to the petroleum museum. It is made up of debris from the oil industry and painted in bright streetart colors.

Stavanger is the gateway to the Norwegian fjords. One of the most popular attractions is Pulpit Rock. More than 250,000 people hike to this cliff, 600 meters above sea level - annually. 


In Stavanger you will also find our Cathedral from 1150 AD and the charming old city, consisting mainly of small, white wooden houses.


If you are into more modern culture, may we suggest you try some of our restaurants and coffee shops, the Petroleum Museum or maybe even search for our modern street art. 


"Fargegaten", the colorful street, is a must where old wooden houses have been painted with bright colors. Here you will find cafes, a hairdresser and small boutiques.

If you are looking for a playground for the children, try The GeoPark right next door to the Petroleum Museum.


Welcome to Stavanger!
