This tour gives you a glimpse into Stavanger’s history. It kicks off with a walk through old Stavanger, whose narrow lanes are gilded with charming white-painted houses. Afterwards, coaches will take you to Stavanger Cathedral. Built back in the Middle Ages, it’s Norway's best-kept church of the period. Next up is the Ledaal estate, which was built in 1803 for the Kielland family. The writer Alexander Kielland is one of the four ‘greats’ of Norwegian literature. You may have noticed his statue in market square, facing the port. These days, Ledaal is used by the Royal family. Exactly opposite here lies the Breidablikk estate. Built in Victorian style, it’s filled with furniture typical of the period. The place is incredibly well preserved, both inside and out, and gives you a great insight into the lives of the middle class at the end of the 1800s.
