Ovre Holmegate Overview
Also known as the most colourful street in Norway, Ovre Holmegate is one of the major attractions in Stavanger. Commonly known as Fargegaten, this street is located in the old shopping district of Stavanger. However, it was in the year 2005 that this street started gaining fame. It was after a local hairdresser, by the name of Tom Kjørsvik proposed a way to transform the street as part of the local Kul Kultur project, that Ovre Holmegate came to life.

Craig Flannagan, an artist, was hired to create a colour scheme for painting the houses on the street. And he decided to paint them in vibrant, bright colours of green, pink and turquoise, which revitalised the street and gave it new life. Throughout the years, numerous new cafés, shops, bars and restaurants were established here, making it a famous tourist attraction in Stavanger.
