The oldest building in Oslo, but if you’re like me, it’s the cemetery that will fascinate you: one of the prettiest cemeteries I have ever visited.

located in a residential area, the walk to the church is pretty nice, you can get lost in little paths around the community gardens. close by there is also the oldest street in Oslo, Damstredet.

Restoring of this church isn't good, but old spirit is there. It's opened only on thursday 16 - 18 pm!

This is the oldest building in Oslo. This ancient church is about 800 years old. The grounds are beautiful. We could not go inside as the doors were locked. Very little information on when you can tour the interior of the church.

This church gets a lift because of the area it's in. Take a walk through the communal gardans and grave yards. The church is a nice small stone church that you can easily viisit during the summer.

This church is the oldest existing building in Oslo. It has an air of old fortress, it isn't always open so it is better to check not to do the trip for nothing. It has a nice graveyard and beautiful walls.
