  • Away from the crowds of Kvernes stave church to visit invites - now for the proud admission price of 55 NOK per adult. From the parking lot, one wonders at first whether it is right here: the white Church but much to new looks. Only in the "shadow" of the new, white Church the old stave church shows up then. Big plus, if you are on the road longer: the toilet in the white Church. Finally another tip about the journey: our Navi sent us by Vebenstad on the Fv255 - here one feels at the end of the world... The road becomes narrower and narrower, finally is on a littered with pot holes and one-lane dirt road on the way - and only hopes that the chassis remains intact and no oncoming traffic comes...

  • Kvernes stave church on Averøy is one of Norway's youngest stave churches built around the year 1300. Looks possibly simple from the outside, but is very detailed on the inside. Beautifully decorated with paintings on the wall and ceiling. Nice location with great views of Kvernesfjorden and Freifjorden. Right next to the "new" Church from 1893. The Church is open to visitors during the summer season. 11.00 to 17.00 every day. Prices: Adult ENOUGH 60, groups (min 10 pers) enough, 40-Student/pensioner ENOUGH 40,-children under 16 years free entrance. Large car park on site. (free)

  • When the new Church (the white one) was completed, the old one should be demolished, which is fortunately been prevented even though the old House now must be supported. In well decorated, the original images in the front part of altar (which later was added) are been glossed over but apparently under Calvinist influence, they are just have to guess. The left side of the nave earlier apparently had a gallery, you can still see on the notches of the pillars. A timber construction work of art!
