Take in the sights and sounds of historic, vibrant Haugesund. Once a hub for the herring industry in the 19th century, it's now a dynamic arts and cultural centre that hosts several festivals every year. Spot the striking pink Town Hall, built in 1931 as a gift from a local ship owner and his wife. Visit the towering Haraldshaugen monument that was raised in 1872 to commemorate the Battle of Hafrsfjord, where King Harald Fairhair consolidated Norway into one kingdom, proclaiming himself its first king. And soak up the spectacular panorama of Haugesund and its surrounds from Steinsfjellet viewpoint, 227m above sea level.
