KRISTIANSAND - The town of flowers & culture
As the capital of southern Norway, Kristiansand has become known as the town of flowers, rich on culture and traditions and with a “laid back” southern atmosphere. Founded in 1641, Kristiansand tends to pleasantly surprise its visitors to the town due to its easy access to the town center with the fish market and the old town. From Kristiansand visitors also have easy access the unspoilt nature and can explore the rest of the region on foot or by coach. The citizens of Kristiansand are friendly and relaxed and the quaint town centre is easy to get to know, perfect for a one day stop as there is time to shop, walk around and check out some of the highlights.
