Opening the large brass church doors is reminiscent of European old cathedral doors. Yet these doors open into a light filled, white church built in the late 1950s to remember the lives lost when The German army razed Bodo as they retreated. The rose window...More

Well worth a visit. The concrete exterior is interesting with a tall bell tower which chimes the hour after a carillon. There is a beautiful rose window inside. We stayed for about an hour taking refuge from the chill wind and rested our legs; no-one...More

This is a very nice place to visit if you are in town. Its got a very scandinavian look but not sure if its the old or new style. Irrespective of the style I enjoyed spending time inside the church due to its interesting architecture.
