KRISTIANSAND

Norway
3°C Dec

Fresh salmon and summer concerts

Feel like a fun weekend holiday? Book a flight to Kristiansand and visit the miniature city in the Vest-Agder Museum and admire the huge collection of cacti at Agder Natural History Museum and Botanical Garden. Or take a dive into the sea at Bystranda city beach, the venue of the Palmesus Beach Festival. Kristiansand is a wonderful destination!

Steam train and city beach

Kristiansand, like all of Norway, is extremely child-friendly. Take your children to the Kristiansand Cannon Museum to see one of the world’s largest cannons. A ride on the Setesdalsbanen steam train, an ancient heritage railway line, will also provide excitement. In the summer, you can take a boat to the little island of Bragdøya to relax on its beaches. Kristiansand is the ideal destination for weekend holidays, but it’s also the perfect starting point for a longer vacation in Norway. Don’t miss this experience: book a flight to Kristiansand now!

Strolling through the old town

Posebyen is the oldest and most characteristic part of town. Stroll past the nice white-terraced houses where the working class used to live. If you’d rather get away from the city, play a round of golf at the beautiful golf course, or get into a boat to catch your own salmon. Back on shore, linger in the fishing port which, because of its pleasant canals and restaurants, is one of the most popular places in town to unwind. During summer, Ravnedalen Valley Nature Park is the venue of wonderful summer concerts.
