Kristiansand, with its colourful houses and interesting history, is a perfect place to take a walking tour.
Embark on a walking tour along a series of boardwalks to the pretty marina with its little boats and peaceful atmosphere. The marina is surrounded by small bridges, restaurants, shops and wooden maritime inspired buildings painted in red and yellow.
You’ll stop at the popular Fish Market, where traders are selling samples of their local specialities, before strolling along the beautiful seafront to Otterdalsparken, a unique recreational area with fountains created by the artist and sculptor, Kjell Nupen.
