Sandnes Overview

Sandnes is a municipality in the county of Rogaland, located geographically right at the heart of the Stavanger region and Northern Jæren and in close proximity to the airport and ferry terminals. The mainline Stavanger - Oslo train stops in downtown Sandnes.

Sandnes is the ninth largest municipality and the eighth largest town in Norway.

It has the status of Cycle town and Healthy City, and is the only town in Norway that is a member of the World Health Organisation’s network of Healthy Cities. The cycle tracks are well marked and mapped, and make it very easy to get around the area on a bike.

The Municipality of Sandnes encompasses large areas where wonderful nature can be experienced. It has its own maps showing walks and suggestions for excursions to various places in the area. Maps showing routes for bikerides can be found on the Sandnes website.

Although traditionally an industrial town, Sandnes is also one of the largest agricultural communities in the county.

The municipal information office (Servicekontoret) and tourist information office can answer most questions about Sandnes.
