This area is well worth finding. Follow harbour around the curve, with sea on left. At first roundabout, turn right into Ovre Homegate. Shops and buildings all painted in bright colours. Very quirky shops and plenty of lively pavement cafes.

A visit in the "coloured street" in Stavanger is always cosy. The houses are painted in all different colours and the old houses are well taken care of. The atmosphere is fantastic, highly recommendable when visiting Stavanger.

Fancy buildings and nice cafes. Worth the watch if you are visiting Stavanger. However, in the summer it seems like the area have a problem with smell coming out of the sewer.

All year long, this street keeps the heartbeat of Stavanger. Each bar is a little different and the connecting streets have plenty of shopping opportunities and art performances. It’s always evolving so keep checking back and discover new things.

Really quite special little street with a handful of non-chain small cafes and bars, very colorful and nice place for a cup of coffee/tea, handmade chocolate or a little lunch. Best in earlt summer and sunny weather for outdoor sitting.

...in a historic „village“ type setting. Relatively nice setting, but reflecting the small size of the city.

This street was reborn when someone got the idea to paint all the buildings in bright colors. OvreHolmegate is now lined with shops, restaurants, and bars. There is even a mural there from the guy who ultimately went to Facebook to paint murals and was...More
