At the Fisherman's wharf one can find an exciting fish market, lively restaurants and small boat traffic. Kristiansand's old town, Posebyen, can boast Northern Europe's largest collection of lowrise, wall-to-wall wooden houses.
From Kristiansand visitors have easy access to unspoilt nature. The south coast is dotted with mile upon mile of tiny rocky islands and picturesque white-painted houses in sheltered inlets, all set against a backdrop of lush green forests and lakes, and a mountainous and majestic inland. See Kristiansand and the surrounding region by foot, bike or coach.
