Drive up here and look at the church - it is not usually open - which is very unusual. Then admire the view of the town and the fjord. Well worth a quick stop.

We stayed in this small town and our room looked out on this beautiful church. Worth a walk, amazing church for a small town.

Visited in July of 2017. The church has a very simple yet dramatic interior. The exterior is very interesting and great for photos. We got some great pictures of the town from the cliff behind the church. Easy to get to from the middle of...More

Nice looking church. Took a few nice pictures. It was close so no chance to go in... It looks better from far ( eg. from the cliff.)
