Attraction details
Owner description: The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Mandal is the largest wooden church in Norway and is the first monumental building which was built in Norway after the union with Denmark ended in 1814. The architect was Jorgen Gerhard Loser. Construction work began in 1817 and the church was in use already in 1819 but officially consecrated in 1821. The church, built in the Neoclassical Empire style, can seat up to 1200 people. The painting "Resurrection", by the famous local artist Adolph Tidemand, hangs in the room on the left side of the alter. The church service in Mandal Church is every Sunday, usually at. 11:00.

This is Norway's largest wooden church, and one of the largest wooden buildings in the country. Construction work started after the city fire in 1810, and the church was opened for service in 1821. There is a nice churchyard surrounding the building.
