  • Beautiful Stave church with lots of history which is clearly and concisely described by the excellent staff.
  • A incredible place! I wasn't so impressed of the church but the surrounding is breathtaking. I really recommend you to go to this place!
  • A must see for everyone who loves history. The stave church is very well preserved. The main attraction are the Viking carvings from 11th century - these are incredible. We had a very good guide that explained everything and enjoyed our visit very much.
  • This is the church with the sign of my marriage. A wonderful atmosphere and very magic location! MUST SEE for ANY mystic interest!
  • One of the most beautiful stave churches. Extraordinary wooden carvings. Quiet rural area, great view over the Lustra fjord.
