This is the smallest Norwegian stave church. Was built around 1150. Difficult to understand how timber building was able to withstand so many centuries of wet summers and cold winters

Beautiful little church dating fro the 12th century seats 40 people. Unfortunately it was closed when we visited, but we could see in the world dows the beautifully painted walls and Pulpit. Would be worth a visit for sure!

We had a guided tour of the inside of the church which dates from the mid-12th C (it was explained that the 1147 date was too precise for confidence). While from the outside it is just a pretty church in a beautiful setting, once inside...More

This is a small little church with a rich history. The people wanted a church so much they built it with their own hands a couple of times.

Undredal is a picturesque village in aurland district..It's about 45 mins by boat from flam. The church is short uphill walk from boat pier. It's is a serene surrounding. Sad part is it's locked

The beauty of Undredal's Stave Church can not be overstated. The small village has a treasure on its doorstep and I believe they know it too, so very proud of their 12 by 4 metre church which has only 40 seats, making it the smallest...More

This is a beautiful old church that has been in operation for centuries. It was locked so we could only visit the outside and grounds but it was part of a pleasant walk around the town.
