“Interesting and very historical and Norwegian, obviously”
Review of Fantoft Stavkirke

Fantoft Stavkirke
Ranked #13 of 146 things to do in Bergen
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 30, 2013

It is located quite a ride from city center, and open only in summer. Not that i missed a lot visiting in April - just the appearance of it is what you need to see (or so I think, at least, having not been inside).

Just like the fjords and the mountains, Fantoft is a must see in Bergen. The church was built in 1150, moved to this place in 1883 and burned in 1992. It was rebuilt after, exactly like it was before. The church is located in a bucolic area with birds and if you are lucky you might see a squirrel as well. From 15th of May until 15th of September (10:30-18:00) it's possible to go inside the church, paying a small fee (please double check the opening times before your visit). But even outside these dates it's worth a visit - the place looks wonderful during autumn, for example. You could plan a picnic in the area in case of very good weather. It's only 5 km away from the cable car to the mountain Ulriken.

An old (though built again not a long time ago because the former one was burnt down) church as they used to be built a long long long time ago. A must to see !!!

We traveled at the fringe season, and the church was closed for the winter. I understand they're trying to profit off of this place, but it would be nice if they had some way of opening it up outside of the summer.

The outside is nice at least...
