Description

Brick church from 1860 beautifully situated on a hill by Ulven in the eastern part of Oslo.

Østre Aker kirke contains eight monolith columns, each made from one piece of granite. In 1928 the church was renovated, and the altar piece was replaced by a new one, carved and modelled in wood by sculptor Thorleif Sohlberg. The old altar piece still hangs in the church.
