Local Information

In this section you can find information about the venue (Arne Rettedals hus), the public transport to and within Stavanger, catering, and an annotated Google Map featuring the venue, excursion, various restaurants and the suggested hotels.


There are several interesting museums in Stavanger, and two art galleries. The museums include two on the historically most important industries in the region: one on the petroleum industry, and one on the canning industry – which was the mainstay of the local economy prior to the North Sea oil boom.

As July is peak cruise-ship season, many of the small craft workshops in Gamle Stavanger (the old town, west of the Vågen sea inlet) will be open during the day to sell their wares. This part of town is well worth a visit for its pretty, small wooden houses and well-kept gardens.

We encourage you to check out the Region Stavanger page for details of these and other tourist activities, or speak to the local organisers.

If you wish to go hiking, ut.no offers interactive maps and plans for walks. Stavanger Turistforening operates many mountain cabins in the area. But if you do go hiking, remember to be prudent – the weather changes quickly, the conditions underfoot can be tricky, and much of this part of Norway can be surprisingly remote.
