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.

Short visiting hours, I believe 11 to 2 p.m. only. Nice from the outside, but the beauty lies within. Plan accordingly.

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
