is the harbour at the heart of Stavanger Norway - busy with sailing boats
from afar, local boats, ferries and cruise ships. Set around it is a rainbow
assortment of wooden seahouses that now contain restaurants, bars and
shops. Its the place that people come to to relax, by walking, eating
or drinking - preferably outside in the sunshine.

you have the time, make sure you spend some time here. Walk around for a
while, sit for a drink at a table outside somewhere, get some prawns and
sit out on the floating booms to eat them.
From here you can wander in many different directions - Gamle Stavanger (the old wooden houses) is on the west side, with Bjergsted park beyond; you could walk along the blue promenade - especially in the evening; the Cathedral is at the south end, with Breiavatnet lake beyond, and the pedestrian shopping streets are hiding behind the restaurants and bars on the east side.
Victoria Hotel and Skagen Brygge Hotell both face onto the harbour and there are many other hotels in Stavanger.

The train station is about 500 meters away, beyond the cathedral and Breiavatnet lake.
