Fantoft Stavkirke - Review

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.

Fantoft Stavkirke, Bergen Reviews

  • Beautiful stave church, in my opinion one of the best out of the 23 that exist around Norway. It's quite hidden at the top of a little hill in the middle of the woods which you need to walk uphill (takes only 10min but not wheelchair accessible). There are hardly any tourists and you need to pay to enter it. Only 3 stars because the church is surrounded by a fence ruining all the pictures and the romantic setting.

  • This is a gorgeous restoration of a stave church. It is secluded so there isn’t much to do around there other than hike and bike trails which are wonderful for a quick getaway from the city center

  • Fun little slice of architecture. Although this is a rebuild, you can still get a sense of history when visiting. Cashiers were very helpful with history and information, visit was free with our Bergen Card. Signage to this place could be better. After putting the address into the GPS, it was not obvious that it was down a secretive walking trail in the woods.

  • This is a nice example of a stavkirke that is very easy to access from central Bergen, even using public transport. The church itself is not large and can be seen completely in as little as 20 minutes, but the ornate carving and the interior structure of the church are nonetheless impressive. I found the ticket staff to be very helpful and willing to answer questions in English. (I recommend bringing cash for the entrance ticket rather than trusting to a credit card, since the transaction cannot be processed if a signature is required.)

  • The church is worth a visit, especially because of the really friendly and informative guides that gave us lots of information. Thank you very much.
