Kristiansand has since its founding by the Danish King Christian IV in 1641 been a thriving point of trade and commerce in the area, as well as an important point of fortification. As time has passed the town has changed and grown but the grid structure it was designed with at its heart remains the same. This makes Kristiansand a comfortable city to explore on a walking tour, and during the guided tour you will walk around and see the majority of our beautiful city center. Meet your guide before we head towards Fiskebrygga, the local fish market, before exploring and walking along the coastline towards Christians Holm Festning. Here we will be walking along the beautiful promenade paths along the oceanfront and the marina, past the city beach and up alongside the river Otra. Leaving the beach we walk towards the older part of town, where you will soon start to see a difference in building styles and materials. We are going to “Posebyen” or “bagtown” directly translated. This area of town contains one of Northern Europe’s largest collection of traditional low-built wooden houses and I am sure your tour guide will explain to you all the theories of what gave that area of town its name. After some time exploring and walking in this beautiful and cozy part of town, where small boutiques and cafes are popping up bringing new life into old buildings, you will head towards the city square where the Cathedral is located.
