Guide to Stavanger

Wild guess: You probably won’t be spending every hour inside the apartment while you’re here (unless you’re a vampire). So, we put together a little Stavanger-guide for you to explore.



A playground constructed with elements from the oil industry and designed to resemble the footprint of the formation at the Troll field in the North Sea. It's the cool neighbor of the Norwegian Petroleum Museum, and guess what? It's not just for kids.


An amusement park located in Ålgård in the Rogaland county, approximately 25 kilometers south of Stavanger (30-minute drive from Stavanger). You can play the hero at the fire station, whip up some chocolate magic in the chocolate factory, take to the skies, and spin around like a whirlwind. Kongeparken has more than 60 thrilling adventures for all ages.

Tickets and more information are available here.

Patisserie, bakery, ice cream parlour, chocolatier, pizzeria, cafe, restaurant, and bar. A great spot for breakfast or lunch, especially if you fancy some American-style pancakes.

The heart of history in the city. It's not just a pretty building; it's packed with stories. Dive into three departments: culture, nature, and a special treat for the little ones at the Norwegian Children's Museum. Learn more and get tickets.


Believe it or not, we’re blessed with some of Norway's most beautiful beaches. Learn how to surf at Borestranda, go for a stroll along Solastranden (the closest one) or visit Ogna if you’re up for a longer drive.
