Of all the stave churches we saw, this was probably my favourite. It is nestled in a forrest and has a very peaceful and calming atmosphere. It was a bit tricky to find but lovely to visit.

Very nice structure in the forrest. You can reach it by taking the BYBANEN light rail. Get off at FANTOFT station. This is a stop with some ugly highrise buildings but a short walk of about 10 minutes take you to the nearby forest with...More

Out of the main city requiring a tram ride to Fantoft and a walk of about 10 minutes to the site in lovely surroundings. It was the first day when the church was open to the public and there is a fee to enter.

We unfortunately went after opening hours so we could not enter. We would have paid the fee of 60 kr to see how the church looks inside. The church is in an otherwise abandon area, a bit remote.

The construction of Stave churches is really cool, but their history is possibly more interesting than the buildings themselves.
