Very Nice Church

I really liked it. Right at the ceter of the city. Very nice setting, beautifully kept old building. Worth a visit.

Gorgeous architecture, inside and out. Enjoyed the organ concert, wonderful acoustics. The Scandinavians take very good care of their cultural treasures and this cathedral is no exception.

The church didn't open until 11 AM, but glad I waited. There was a one hour organ concert which was absolutely wonderful. Elisabeth Lutcherath (Danish) played five different pieces of music.

The Kristiansand Domkirke is located near the square in the center of town and features a good organ concert which lasts about 30 minutes. Other than the concert offered, the church is not too unique. The church is nice and the concert made it special.

I understand there is always a concert when cruise ships are in town. The cathedral opened at 11 for 11.30 organ concert (there are 2 organs). Lovely wooden ceiling. There was also a concert at the bandstand in the adjacent square.

Amazing cathedral... the wooden interior was gorgeous! It's not an "old" church for Europe.. but it sure is a beautiful one! And if you can schedule a visit when the church organist is doing a concert... WOW! just wow! Definitely worth a visit.

I like this church, the cathedral for the diocese of Agder & Telemark. Late 19th century neogothic offering wooden, lofty vaults. Very good musical activity.

It is quite a spectacular church that really stands out in the main town square opposite the fountain. Not too opulent but simple and very well maintained. They even have headsets for English translation of the service on this Sunday morning. I am not sure if they do so every Sunday.
