This church is in a spectacular setting with magnificent views over the fjord. You could visit it on the way back from having walked up the steps to the top of the waterfall and the time spent visiting would be very worthwhile.

We walked from Hotel Union to the Octagon church. It is simple but relaxing and I was glad we stopped in to visit

If you have time, take a walk up from the harbor to see this little church. It is interesting. You will then see other areas of the town.

if you're in town, it's a short walk from the port and just a few minutes from the Union Hotel. If you're walking along the Fossevandring, it's worthwhile to stop in.
