You should visit Magasin Blaa, a shopping centre where you can combine some pleasant shopping with the city's best view before making a stop at the
Norwegian Petroleum Museum with its characteristic architecture and compelling exhibitions inside. Next to the museum, you find the Geopark - a park full of activities for youngsters; constructed and developed through recirculation of know-how, technology and objects from the oil industry.
Further along the promenade the veteran boat "Gamle Rogaland" is moored. It was built in 1929 and was part of the coastal express service between Sandnes/Stavanger and Oslo during the 1930s. Since being restored, the ship is now Norway's largest preserved veteran boat.
As you enter the harbour area you will pass the cruise boats offering day trips to the mesmerising Lysefjord with the Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) and Kjerag. Or perhaps you would like to take a boat trip to Flor & Fjære's exotic gardens?
Once you arrive at the innermost part of the harbour it is time for a bite to eat, and make sure you do what the locals do: go to the fish market, buy a bag of cooked prawns, sit down by the quayside and eat them while enjoying the view of the old waterfront houses and the Valberg tower.
Walk further along the quay and visit all the white wooden houses in Old Stavanger! Then make a stop at the lovely iconic Stavanger Concert Hall. You could even take a guided tour of the concert hall. Finish off your promenade in Bjergsted park, just above the concert hall.
