This is a great example of a stave church - one of the largest left in Norway. Admission (at 60 NOK, a bargain) comes with a short explanatory brochure which really helped us to appreciate the church and its history. Parts date to the 1200's. The church is surrounded by a cemetery, which is interesting in its own right. A... More

This is one of the last medieval church named "starve church". The church, with the cemetery around, lies in a beautiful landscape and is a real wonder. The entry of the church is not free but you can admire the church and wandering around freely

This stave church gives you insight into history and local "heroes". Worth entering and to see the church in sunlight with blue skies is a pretty sight. Nice written guide give you freedom to read and understand on your own. Recommendable for a quiet calm history activity!

Called here and so glad we did. The place is beautiful! An original building with a rich history. Make sure to look out for the carvings of runes and animals.

Ode to the woodwork of early scandinavians. Very impressive construction and lovely surrounding area. Great walk from town.

I lived in Kvitfjell for some months and i had the opportunity to visit this church one day. It's a must go if you visit this area, a church from the 13th century that has been well conserved in norwegian hands !

If you walk from Ringebu night or daytime you will walk along the river approximate 400 meters above and view the valley as well as the mountains on the other side - you can see Kvitfjell as well.

The visit to Ringebu Stave Church was not a disappointment. I had just visited Lom Stave church, and it was fascinating to see the difference between them. Be aware that the church has opening hours, so check before you go.
