The cathedral is a typical village church, nothing special like those of stavanger or trondheim. Getting inside can be a prob as well, since it's mostly closed

The church is worth visiting whilst walking around the well kept streets of the Old Town. The church has an amazing timber roof and a beautiful organ positioned before the altar.

Sits prominent in it own park on the edge of the main square. when we visited all the tulips were in flower and the cherry blossom trees that line the streets of the "Old Town" were in full bloom. Inside the cathedral we were surprised to find it is entirely made of timber with huge wooden columns supporting the wood... More

The interior has an elegant simplicity and is mostly made of wood. When we visited the tulip beds were in full bloom. As Kristiansand is a rather small place, I would include this as a site to see when visiting.

Pretty little fishing village a short bus ride form Kristiansand. Pretty, clean little town; not a lot to do. There are a couple of restaurants, and one can walk through the village and admire the water front and pretty wooden houses. We found the Hollen citizens we encountered friendly. Bus fare relatively expensive 20/pp round trip from Kristiansand Center. Beware... More

As part of our self-guided walking tour of Kristiansand during our Norway fjord cruise we walked past this lovely cathedral and took some photos. This church is located right in the heart of downtown and is a short walk from the cruise ship dock. Completed in 1885, this cathedral is one of the largest cathedrals in Norway. The surrounding area... More

The church is impressive by itself - elegant in a somewhat understated way - inside and out. While I am a fan of stave churches, this was a great church to visit, even while workers hurried to complete renovations that included installation of a new main organ. What put this church over the top for us was the fact that... More

Kristiansand was our first port of call on a recent Baltic cruise, we liked the laid back atmosphere of the small city of Kristiansand, we went round the city on a land train and spotted the Domkirke. We were told it had 13 doors but we couldn't find one that was open!!! Still, we took lots of photos of the... More

From outside, this Domkirke looks similar to other churches. But if you step inside, you will find it's quite different; as you will see it all wooden. It was my first time to see a church with wood wall inside, usually churches are made by brick or stones...so this Domkirke gave me quite an impression. Beautiful brown woods make a... More

This is a lovely stone church in Southern Norway. The interior is worth a visit....Fantastic woodwork. If you can catch a service it is even better.
