Stavanger is Norway's most international city. Although it is the fourth largest city in Norway, it has kept it's small town charm. Stavanger-Web has been on the web since 1997, providing you with information about this adorable city in English.

Stavanger is the gateway to the Norwegian fjords. One of the most popular attractions is Pulpit Rock. More than 200,000 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.


Welcome to Stavanger!
