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

  • 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.)

  • This church is beautiful, interesting, and historic. You won't need to spend much time here, but it is worth visiting. The carvings on the pews were beautiful. The forest around the church makes it seem like you aren't in a city. The sign leading to the church is almost impossible to read. It took us a few minutes to find the driveway.

  • Beautiful church, cashier ruined the whole experience. Highly unfriendly and rude, follows you around with punishing glances if you spend more than a couple minutes in the church. After paying 60kr (~6€) to enter i expect to be able to spend more than 5min looking at it without being treated harshly If you have the time visit one of the more distant churches

  • Historical monument that should be preserved. Is part of our European history.
