The local stopping place for the inter-island local ferry boat. Of parti ular interest is the bronze statue of a fisher-woman with her herring catch. Its full of nice photo opportunities.

This is a central place for ferries and sightseeing boats, and one of the first places a tourist would get to.

The statue located close to the sea that summarizes a major part of Krisiansund's history. Definitely going to try klippfisk at a restaurant.

I had a fantastic local guide that told funny storys from the old days, he made the statue alive. It is in the city center though, you pass it when you catch the little harbour boat.
