  • This church is about two hours from Oslo, is entirely made of wood and has a very special architecture, from the outside it looks very big in fact the Interior is very small, and this has a little disappointed, we were struck by the strong smell of wood, very personable. Tickets cost eight euros per person, 5 for students and free for children under 12. C ' on the ticket includes a visit to two museums, one is located under the ticket office, composed of some prints and illustrations very nice I guess, tell the history of the Vikings, as being the only explanations written in Norwegians are incomprehensible to me, and the other a few hundred meters away and that we have visited.

  • Amazing! Such a beautiful building and a well run facility. Our guide was very friendly and informative. The exhibition was interesting despite the text only being in Norwegian. The cafeteria is a great place to grab a light lunch before heading back out on the road.
  • What an incredible building. Really, really, worth seeing. We went there 22 July 2016, and spent a beautiful afternoon there. There's also a small cafeteria close by, and a few souvenirs to buy if you wish. Unforgettable.
  • Totally unique experience. Amazing building, more than 800 years old, awesome artworks. Must see.
  • We went there on our way to Forsand and make a stop here at the church. Nice place with a small cafe nearby.
  • The largest medieval church built in the 13th century. All wood, tong and groove, pegs. Really cool.
