  • Great example of a stave church. The guide told us with passion about his church and the history. We walked around it and inside, which was also very nice. Lucky this one is still standing and hasn't been taken down in the past
  • We went late so the church was already closed. But the gate was open so we could enter and go around the church. Seing it at the evening makes it so special and incredible. A church made almost 1000 years ago stands there telling you so many stories. Stop there, at least to breath the air of the wood and to see its majesty
  • It costs 70kr to go in which is quite a lot but everything in Norway is expensive so it's par for the course. I saw the replica of this church in Moorhead, Minnesota and was very impressed but the real thing is incredible.
  • Thought to be the oldest stafekirke in Norway. Impressively intact and in perfect preservation state.
  • Amazing piece of architecture. I hope to return in a season when I can go inside. Such a lovely little valley around it, too.
