City Walk with your own Private Guide (10:00-13:00)
During this tour with your private guide, you will discover the old Stavanger neighborhood, which consists of 173 wooden houses from the late 18th and early 19th centuries. In fact, this is the largest collection of wooden houses in Europe. We will walk through Øvre Holmegate, a modern street where all the houses are painted in different colors. In addition, we will visit Valbergtårnet, an old watchtower for the city guards and we will pass by the Stavanger Cathedral, the only Norwegian cathedral from the Middle Ages that has preserved its original architecture. We will hear stories of Stavanger’s stagnation and progress, from urban formation, through the industrial ages with herring and canned food, to the modern oil city of today. The tour ends at the Petroleum Museum, where we will get a better idea of everything that surrounds the black gold of Norway.
