Kristiansand has a long and interesting history as the central point for trade and commerce in the southern part of Norway. What better way to explore the centre of Kristiansand, with its colorful houses and interesting history, then by joining a VOX 360 city walk. You will receive your own audio guide and a map of the city so you can enjoy the guided city tour at your own speed. Kristiansand, the capital of the south, was almost entirely destroyed by bombs in 1940. The reconstruction created a new image for the town, with modern buildings in many different colors. We recommend your first stop will be at the local fish market where you will be able to take a look at all the local seafood specialties. You can then continue your walk through the center of the city, past the cathedral and local market place, following the suggestive route or choosing your own path. The old part of the town has many characteristic right -angled streets and is known as Kvadraturen in Norwegian. Part of this area is Posebyen which constitutes one of the largest collection of low, wooden houses in Northern Europe. You will hear about the big city fire that destroyed half of the cities houses. You will enjoy a walk along the river Otra and follow the seawalk taking you past the Christiansholm Fortress and the marina.
