In the Old Town you see the charming Market Square, as well as the typical sea houses, the colorful streets and even some Street Art. One of the highlights of the city, is the Cathedral. The Stavanger Cathedral is one of Norway’s best-kept cathedrals and is located not far from the harbor. The church was built in Anglo-Norman style, probably by English artisans in 1125. In 1272 the church got damaged in a fire, after which they have rebuilt it in a Gothic style. The Cathedral has beautiful stained glass windows and a wall carpet. A beautiful mix of styles, worth to see this when you are in the city.
The Cathedral is currently closed for restoration and repair, however you can still view this from the outside.
Stavanger has many museums in the center of the city. Your first stop is the Stavanger Maritime Museum (outside visit). The museums houses various exhibitions, such as an original office of a shipping company with its inventory still on a boat. ‘From herring to oil’, is an exhibition that explains the maritime history of Stavanger.
The Norwegian Canning Museum is next on this accessible rolling tour (outside visit). It is located in an authentic cannery which was up and running from 1916 until 1958. Before, the building was used as a storage facility for canner John Braadland. The museum gives an impression of what the working environment of the factory used to be like. Next to the museum, there is a cafe in one of the original worker’s cottages, where you can see how the locals were dressed at the time. The cafe still offers a variety of local specialties.
At the end of the tour, your guide will take you back to the cruise port or Cathedral again, from where you can explore the city further by yourselves.
