A major landmark in the town of Kristiansand. It is still a working church. When we went it was a Sunday, and it was partly obscured by construction and fences. Still worth going in to admire the lovely architecture and soak up the ambiance.

Walk downtown from the pier. You can take a public transit bus from the terminal in Kristiansand and go directly to Hollen. Station personnel are very helpful in directing you.
