SAS Crew tips: Kristiansand

Oda Herlofsen flies out of Oslo but lives in Kristiansand, which makes her the perfect go-to person for tips on this lively Norwegian city.

Hos Naboen

I really recommend this place. They have something for everyone, from soups and salads, to burgers and sandwiches. Everything is homemade and their cooperation with the bakery next door – which is the most famous in Kristiansand – means you always get fresh bread as well as fresh cakes for dessert.

Grab a burger

If you take the trail down to the Ravne­dalen park you’ll find a beautiful and peaceful oasis. You’ll also find a restaurant known for its fantastic burgers, Café Generalen.

Dueknipen

A hike up to the viewpoint Dueknipen is a great way to end the day. The views from the top of this hill take in the entire city and it’s a wonderful place to watch the sunset.

Markens

The main street in town is Markens, which begins at the top of the city and extends all the way down to the sea. Along the way you can explore stores and tiny shopping malls, as well as find plenty of places to eat. The town square also intersects with Markens, and you can visit the famous Oddernes Church, which dates back to 1040.

Fiskebrygga

Kristiansand is surrounded by the ocean and there are a lot of good restaurants where you can eat fresh fish just a few meters from the sea in the Fiskebrygga area. During the summer, there are live concerts every Tuesday – it’s a great place to meet people, sit in the sun and just enjoy something to eat or drink while the music washes over you.

Stretch your legs

The city is only one square kilometer, so it’s perfect for walking – and there’s plenty to see. In the northeast corner, you’ll find an area called Posebyen, which managed to escape most of the major fire of 1892, so there are quaint white houses from that time still there. From Posebyen, continue towards Baneheia, a hilly area with good places to work out, swim or walk.

Skippergata

This is a nice quiet street, with shops that sell not just the usual stuff, but local designers as well. The local museum is also here and hosts a variety of exhibitions throughout the year.
