  • Helt fantastisk å komme øverst i kirken og se utover hele byen, anbefales! God trim er det også vel verdt de få kronene det koster.  more »
  • The old church is worth seeing, but the highlight is the view from the observation tower to the city. However, in order to enjoy the beautiful view, you have to be able to enjoy the beautiful steps up over 420 steps. The worst is the first piece, as it goes there into a narrow round turret over old stone steps, after which it goes. If you are at the top of the platform, you can also look up to the harbour. Down it is then the same, the first piece is good and the rest goes down again through a second turret.
