Kristiansand is almost as far south as you can go in Norway. This is Norway's Sorlandet, or Southland. Kristiansand ferry port is situated at the mouth of River Otra on the Skagerrak Strait (an arm of North Sea) that divides Norway and Denmark.
Centrally located on the South coast of Norway, Kristiansand ferry port offers convenient domestic as well as international travel and transportation - by sea, rail and road. Because of short ferry crossings and frequent sailings to neighbouring countries, Kristiansand port is frequently referred to as Norway's "Gateway to Europe". All ferries from Kristiansand can be booked through AFerry
The alternative name of Kristiansand is Christianssand. Kristiansand is named after King Christian IV, who founded it in 17th century during the Renaissance. Kristiansand is also Norway's sunniest part. Its beautiful beaches and fascinating scenery attract lots of visitors from the rest of Norway and neighbouring countries. It is also a popular destination for fishing and hunting although strict rules have to be adhered to.
Kristiansand has some of the most interesting history museums such as Vest Agder - Norway's largest open air museum, Kristiansand Cannon Museum with the world's second largest gun in it, a recreated Bronze Age settlement and Setesdalsbanen - Vintage Steam Railway along with other Renaissance architecture like the Christiansholm Fortress and a 960 year old Oddernes Church.
Kristiansand is not only a wonderful beach resort but a pretty sight as well with rows of old wooden houses and hanging baskets of flowers everywhere.
Places to see while in Hirtshals include the Nordsoen Oceanarium, one of the largest aquariums in Europe with a collection of 70 different species, and the 35 meter high Hirtshals fyr Lighthouse, built in 1860.

03 Jul 2018Simple journey that saves time
On our way home we didn't drive through Germany, Denmark and Sweden like on the start of our vacation, we took the ferry. The only thing I didn't like was that the cars started to move after more than 30 minutes after the ferry landed in Hirtshals. Apart from that, I'd recommend it.
