From the outside the church appears to be entirely made of stone. On the inside however the interior including the walls and ceiling are in norwegian wood. New Gothic wooden style - quite charming and differs from churches you see on the continent.

We were on a cruise that stopped in Kristiansand. It was a short walk to town and it was a very quaint little town. The cathedral is the third oldest in Norway. It was beautiful. The oraganist was playing and that was a real treat. What a beautiful job he did. Sitting there I noticed a small ship hanging from... More

We visited the church on a Sunday and were privileged to hear the magnificent sound of the pipe organ. The organist played some gorgeous music that used most of the organ and stops. The last piece he played was a Toccata by a Russian composer which was extraordinary. We found out after the fact that we could have listened to... More

Visited with friends. The woman who greeted us was very friendly and answered all our questions. The inside of the church is beautiful and I recommend to spend 5. min of your time here if you visit Kristiansand.

Centrally located in Kristiansand city, on the main square, you will find this beautiful (new) gothic style church from 1885. It was built on the ruins of the old church that burnt down in 1880. It is one of the biggest churches in Norway. If you like architecture from previous centuries you will enjoy visiting this church. And if you... More

Loved all of the detail in this church. Was lucky that the organist was performing a concert. Wow the organist was beyond amazing very powerful performance was so relaxing and inspiring to just sit and listen and view all of the beautiful architecture of the church.

Lots of reviews mention an organ concert, did not see that. It's a church, like lots of other European churches. Not much to do in this town, so if you have some time, good for a place to rest.
