Best time to visit
The best time to visit Stavanger is in the summertime from May to September. All seasons have their charm of course but it is in the summertime things happen in Stavanger. In May spring comes along, Constitution day is celebrated on May 17th, and there are still some snow left on the highest mountains outside Stavanger. In June the festival season begins. Each year there is a grand slam beach volleyball tournament in the middle of town ( http://www.wtstavanger.com/ ). July and August are the warmest months here and this is holiday season for Norwegians. But there are still lots happening in Stavanger with the Gladmat festival ( http://www.gladmat.no/english/index_e... ) as a highlight in July (a food festival).
