It's supposed to represent rock crystal in roses.( there are thousands of beautiful roses around the building that would be stunning in season.) Inside the church is stunning. The wall of the chancel dominates. The squares between 30 metre high pillars are filled with stained...More

We visited Kristiansund for some hours. After walking around the harbor we found this interesting church with an extraordinary architecture. You have to visit the church. BTW: We parked our car 200m next to the church (south) at the public car park for less money.

A nice church to visit. It was built after the bobing during WW2 and was probably built a little bit to fast during the reconstruction of Kristiansund. Take warm clothes with you if you go there for a mass. It is awfully cold. Otherwise quite...More

I'm generally not a big fan of modern churches, but the Kirkelandet Kirke really impressed me. The soaring design and modern stained glass design is well worth a visit.
