Stalheim is a village in the municipality Voss in Hordaland county, Norway. The small village lies along the European route E16 highway in the northeastern part of the municipality. The village sits at a high point in the inner part of the Nærøydalen valley which leads northeastwards towards the Nærøyfjorden. The highway runs through a series of tunnels to descend into the valley, although the old road Stalheimskleivi can still be used with its hairpin turns and 20% grade.
The Stalheimsfossen waterfall is the most notable sight in the area. The view from Stalheim is well-known from several paintings, in particular Johan Christian Dahl's painting Fra Stalheim from 1842. Sivlesteinen, a memorial of the poet Per Sivle, was raised by Noregs Ungdomslag and other organizations at Stalheim in 1909.
In 1943 Lebensborn activity took over the use of Stalheim Hotel.
