Gamle Stavanger Overview
This is one of the most beautiful and vibrant tourist places in Stavanger. A major historic area in the city, Gamle has a collection of numerous quaint and tranquil older, wooden homes that lie along the stone-paved streets. It is also known as the largest surviving wooden house settlement in all of northern Europe.

The picturesque streets of Gamle are great to explore. With many galleries and museums also lining the meandering streets here, you can also find the Maritime Museum and the Norwegian Canning Museum here. There are over 170 wooden houses here, all of which date back to the 18th century, and are similar in style and structure.

The houses here are made of timber, with an arch on the top of the roof, that can be expanded into the living quarters. The houses also have a flat top, which are placed asymmetrically on the roof and are often called the Stavanger arch. The entire area of Gamle is great for a relaxing stroll.
