    One of two beautiful churches in Risor, as pretty on the inside as it is on the outside.

    Well worth a visit. Take lots of pictures.

    The grounds and the stones are also very interesting.

    This is a very special find. History and facts come alive when the guide we had stood up on the pulpit and told stories!! Wish it was available to view more often as we tried to take other friends another time and it wasn't a ailable

    Just like the Oddernes church, this one is one of the most beautiful and historically interesting churches of the south. It's quite hard to visit without a car, and I don't even know if its open for tourists, but one sure can attend sunday services. I would recommend for tourists to visist Oddernes Church if you don't have unlimited time on your hands.

    If you are here between the end of June and mid-August, this church is a must-see! From the outside it seems quite simple, but the inside is fabulous!

    This is Norway's largest wooden church, and one of the largest wooden buildings in the country. Construction work started after the city fire in 1810, and the church was opened for service in 1821. There is a nice churchyard surrounding the building.

    We stopped by on our way out of town and the church did not disappoint. You can almost feel like you are stepping back in time when you enter places like this. The old wood, paint, rocks and creaking floor boards add that sense of age and beauty. The history and manicured gardens make for a great stop and to step back in time to a more simpler world. Do remember that it is an old church, be respectful and enjoy the surrounds.

    unlike a lot of churches throughout the world, many of the churches in Norway are not open all the time. We hiked up the hill to see this very pretty structure and toured around the exterior but it was not open on the day we were there. Overall, this is a very cute little village and loads of cute shops and handicrafts for sale in the town square.

    We got married at this church in 2006.
    We chose this church because of its intimacy and nice location. The inside is really special and differs from others.
    For visitors I believe the location of the church might be just as interesting as the inside.

    This is free and just worth a visit if you are near by.
