Experience Kristiansand and the charming Vest-Agder Open Air Museum on this half-day tour.

Departing the pier by coach, you will begin with a scenic drive through the city center of Kristiansand. This capital of the South was founded in the 17th century by King Christian IV, King of Denmark and Norway and the old town center is a good representation of the city's character. Along your route, you will marvel at the strict right-angled streets and typical architecture, which combines charming wooden houses and thoroughly modern buildings.

Your first stop is at the fascinating Vest-Agder Open Air Museum, where you can see approximately 30 homes that were relocated to the grounds of the Museum. The Museum has been strategically divided into four sections so that visitors can gain a good insight into the various districts of the county. During your guided visit, special attention will be given to a variety of old farmhouses from the Stesdal area, as well as the 11 homes located on Bygaden, the town street.

Re-boarding your coach, you will next travel to Sogne, where you will enjoy a walk through Hollen, also known as the fishermen's street. Following your stroll, you will have the opportunity to visit the Sogne Old Church, where the interior is richly adorned with renaissance decorations that date from the 17th century, as well as baroque paintings from the 18th century.

Next, travel along the coastal road as you make your way back to the pier, taking advantage of the chance to admire the idyllic local summer-houses, where many Norwegian families spend their vacations.
