Get to know Stavanger: The wharf houses of Stavanger

Take in the fresh air in the harbour by the historic wharf houses of Stavanger (Sjøhusrekken) as the seagulls squeak in the background.

Along the harbour of Stavanger there are around 60 maritime buildings. They were built at the end of the 18th century and early 19th century, previously used as salting works for herring, storehouses for salt, logs and other goods, as well as for other industries. On the other side, at the back of these houses, was the owner's residence with exit to the street. These are now converted into offices, restaurants, apartments as well as other businesses.
