During the Middle Ages, Norway had the monopoly on wooden stave churches- from the original 750 they had, 30 are standing today. Stave Churches are architecturally distinct with their dragon heads, carved doorways and vertical planks. The best church with this kind of architecture is the Fantoft Stavkirke. Located in the south of Bergen, the original stave was in 1150 and in 1883 moved to the current location of the Fantoft Stavkirke.

  • Nice church. One has to pay to enter and a nice little walk to the church

  • A short walk from the tram and through the woods you'll find this beautiful church. A bit pricey (isn't everything in Norway?!) but the Bergen Card made it free

  • Church itself is nice, but knowing it's a replica does make the experience less special. Especially the unfriendly guy reluctantly selling tickets and shoo-ing you away because you're just trying to take a picture from outside(!) of the gate entrance, took the pleasure out of it. This dude took away my doubt about whether or not spending money on a ticket was worth it.

  • Absolutely beautiful, the carpentry is astonishing and there is a lovely feel to the church. Couldn't believe there was a window for the Lepers to be involved in the service although not allowed inside. The aroma is quite amazing. Would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Bergen recommend this to anyone

  • Nice recreation of the church! The guide had no qlue of history! Or of how church life where practised and how the church liturgy was in the old church.
