We went there by car and our GPS had a bit trouble to find it. There are not many indication on the road. So once you arrive at a kind of bus parking your GPS might tell you to continue, but there is only a short road on a private company land! So you have to park somewhere around in... More

Unfortunetly we did not get a chance to see inside as we arrived late. The surroundings are really beautiful and the stroll from the tram stop is really nice.

Went by the light railway and got off at Paradis (suggested in tour book). Glad we did, because we walked back to Fantoft and we would not have wanted to walk all that distance uphill. There are however no directions for Paradis, but having asked a local, it was very straight forward. When you gate off the train/tram, bear left... More

Over charged to see an inside that is uglier than the outside which is beautiful and should be seen. Don't spend the money but come see it.

It's a nice church but the real one was burned down so, this one is just a re-build one. It was closed when we visit but surrounding area is nice.

It was a bit out of the way, but easy to get to on public transport (ask the visitor center for excellent directions). There isn't much else around, and not much there to explain the church...so it's best to educate yourself about it before you arrive.

This church was really incredible. It is Christian with symbols of the old Norweign gods. It was very interesting to photograph and the inside was gorgeous. The grounds: now those were spectacular. I felt like I was looking for Hansel and Gretel's house -- it was like walking in a fairy tale. Such absolute beauty. It's only a stop that... More

Probably about a 10 minute walk from the nearest tram stop. Very pretty church, but quite small, and not much else around, so viewing the church only takes minutes, then there's not much else to do except snap a picture and walk back to the tram. Not even any historical information on a plaque to peruse, or anything of the... More

This was a quick stop on a tour of Bergen highlights. It is a vaery good reproduction of a Stave Church. Visit the interior and get a good photo at the platform outside the fence.

We stayed in a B&B in Pardis, so we hiked here from the house. I had already seen the stavkkirke in the Norwegian Culture Museum in Oslo, so I didn't feel a need to pay the admission fee to enter. But the area is beautiful for hiking.
