Breivatnet is the small lake with fountain situated in the centre of Stavanger beside the cathedral. A popular place to come and feed ducks or simply take a short easy stroll.

the steps up to the Cathedral from the market Walking around the lake clockwise starting at the cathedral, you pass several good restaurants in magnificent renovated houses. At the end of the lake is a memorial to Norwegian emigrants who helped build America and across the road is the bus station and then the railway station.

In extremely cold winter weather the lake freezes and folks take to the ice to skate and party!
