What to see in Haugesund

Nestled along the southwestern coast of Norway, Haugesund is more than just a port town. In a land once ruled by Vikings, Haraldshaugen stands tall as a reminder of Haugesund's royal lineage. Also known as the Harald Fairhair Monument, this stone memorial was erected in 1872 to commemorate the 1,000th anniversary of King Harald I's unification of Norway. The monument consists of a tall granite obelisk surrounded by 29 smaller stones, representing each of the historical Norwegian counties. A visit here is a journey back in time, as you stand on the very grounds believed to be the burial site of King Harald I. The panoramic views from Haraldshaugen encompass the vast North Sea on one side and the picturesque town of Haugesund on the other, making it both a historic and scenic marvel.

A short drive from Haugesund port will transport you to the island of Karmøy, often dubbed the "Norwegian Klondike" due to its historical significance in herring fishing. The quaint fishing villages of Skudeneshavn and Åkrehamn, with their well-preserved wooden houses, narrow streets and harbours filled with sailing boats, evoke a sense of nostalgia. But Karmøy isn't just about history. It's home to some of Norway's most beautiful beaches. Åkrasanden, with its fine white sand and dunes, is particularly stunning. The beach stretches out invitingly, providing a stark contrast to the rocky coastline typically associated with Norway. It's an ideal spot for a leisurely stroll, kite flying or even a refreshing dip for the brave-hearted!

In the heart of Haugesund, a structure stands as a testament to the town's resilience and unity: the Haugesund Town Hall. Gifted to the town by shipowner Knut Knutsen OAS and his wife Elisabeth in 1931, this impressive pink building is surrounded by a beautifully manicured park, complete with fountains, statues and a duck pond. The town hall, with its twin towers and striking architectural style, has become a symbol of pride for the locals. But the allure of Haugesund's downtown area isn't just its town hall. The town is also known for its thriving cultural scene. If your visit coincides with the annual Norwegian International Film Festival or the Sildajazz (Haugesund International Jazz Festival), you're in for a treat. These events, among others, transform Haugesund into a lively hub of films, music, and festivities.
