Overview

Situated 34 kilometres outside andalsnes by Rodven. This stave church is a one nave church of a type which has interior staves in the longer walls. It was probably constructed around 1300. The medieval church had external galleries all the way around, but these were demolished during a reconstruction in the 17th century. There are religious service in the stave church every year at Midsummer. The church is also used for weddings. Daily guided tours in summer.

Found out by chance that this was on our way so stopped in and it was open. Lovely old building with a lovely Norwegian young lady to explain its history to us. Open 11-4 everyday in summer.

On a cold and wet summer day we thought this would be a good stop before going to Andalsnes. After going through Eidsbygda there is an 8km winding, narrow and bumpy road to get to Rodven. Getting there 20 minutes after it closed and the...More
