The walk up from the town center to the church is well worth the effort. The building is early 14th century and beautifully preserved. Next to it is the workshop of the foremost maker of Norwegian violins. His legacy is maintained by a local craftsman...More

This historic church is nestled in the beautiful Hardanger Fjord area (Eidfjord). What a beautiful piece of history! Well worth a visit.

We took a short hike around the small town and came upon this beautiful church. We did not stop to go inside. Be sure you get the map from the Tourist Information place. The town is very small and it's hard to get lost.

Would have loved to have seen the inside in person, but we arrived late in the day, and the church was locked. Otherwise, it's a picture perfect little church in a beautiful setting that looks like it could be used in Fairy Tale books. Absolutely,...More
