Nice cathedral

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

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
