Description

Nedstrand Church was built in 1868. In 1829 architect Linstow made a standard design for Norwegian churches. Nedstrand church is built mainly after his design but architect Conrad Fredrik von der Lippe did not follow this rigidly. He gave the building a stave church inspired choir which makes the interior warmer and more spacious at
the same time. The alter piece is from 1611 and has adorned three churches in Nedstrand. Tomas the carpenter is master of the rich carvings, and Peter Reimers was the painter. In 1628-29 a famous German artist was also here, his name was Gottfrid Hendzel. These artists influenced the interior of many churches, especially in Rogaland.
