A colourful street in the centre of Stavanger where all buildings have been painted in fresh and vibrant colours.
The colourful street #fargegata
This is perhaps the most colourful street in all of Norway, and is often referred to as Stavanger's 'Notting Hill'. The area experienced a renaissance in 2005 when hairdresser Tom Kjørsvik envisaged doing something totally unique with it. All the houses along the street were painted in different hues, in accordance with a colour scheme suggested by the artist Craig Flannagan. As you wander along Øvre Holmegate, you will find several niche shops as well as charming cafes and pubs.
