Description

Undredal Church is built as a stave church in 1147 and was called St. Nicholas Chapel. The church has white clapboard sidings and is the smallest in Scandinavia in regular use.

Undredal Church probably received its present apperance from a substantial restoration which was carried out in 1722. In 1962 the church was internally restored and they recovered the ancient decorations we can see today. Three coats of paint were washed off to reveal the old distempered decorations which had been concealed for so long.The chandelier with its five carved deer heads is believed to be medieval, that's also one of the church bells. The pulpit is dated 1696 and the brass candlesticks on the altar 1702. The Church in Undredal is small in size, but it is a great cultural treasure and well worth a visit.

 The church is open daily during the summerseason - rest of the year (groups) by appointment - latest 3 days before arrival: post@undredal.no or ph. 95 29 76 68.
