This is an gem central located at the city square. It's from late 1800 and just went through a bit of renovation. It stands proudly as a landmark together with the citys fire tower in city hall right across from it.

This wonderful cathedral is in the heart of Kristiansand. A Neo-Gothic cathedral built in 1884. Wonderful viewing inside this church with excellent acoustics. We were able to listen to a one hour free organ recital and I was extremely impressed with the atmosphere it created....More

A major landmark in the town of Kristiansand. It is still a working church. When we went it was a Sunday, and it was partly obscured by construction and fences. Still worth going in to admire the lovely architecture and soak up the ambiance.
