Kristiansand

Founded in 1641, Kristiansand is a town steeped in tradition and maritime history. It was once the home to one of the world’s largest fleets of sailing ships. Although the whole town centre fits within one square kilometre it is Norway’s fifth largest town and the capitol of Southern Norway.

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.
