Haugesund Hotels

Along the waterfront of Haugesund you’ll see colorful, terraced, neo-classical buildings, with homes, restaurants, and hotels sharing the picturesque view across the North Sea. The town itself is full of pleasant parks and a lively square, where you’ll often find festivals and cultural events going on.

Things to see

The distinctive pink Haugesund Town Hall was built in a stylish, neo-classical style, and sits overlooking the town square, amongst well-manicured parkland. Take a tour inside and you’ll see intricate murals, famous works of art, and interesting architectural features. The building is still a functional town hall for the region, so you’ll see staff scurrying around and ceremonies such as weddings taking place during the day. The national monument of Haraldshaugen commemorates the Battle of Hafrsfjord which led to the unification of Norway. Atop a hill you’ll see a towering granite stone surrounded by many smaller stones, and bronze panels that show important scenes from Norway’s history. At the Arquebus War History Museum you can learn about the German occupation of Norway during World War 2, including how locals lived during this time, their fight for independence, and how they overcame the invading forces.
