Overview
Details

Historians do not know the exact year when Nykirke church was built, but we have good reason to believe that it is about the same age as Borre church, which was built around 1100.

Medieval church

Nykirke church is a medieval romanesque stone building from the 1100s, and has 140 seats.

It was fully restored in 1686. The congregation of Nykirke took over responsibility for the church in 1849 and had it restored again. The altarpiece was painted by Hans Wang in 1890. The church was dedicated to St. Nicholas.

The church building is one of 160 preserved stone churches in Norway and has by The Directorate for Cultural Heritage protected status. 

 

Activities Regular church services Sundays and on holidays at 11 a.m. Evening Mass, concerts, lectures, christenings, weddings and funerals e.g. are also typical church events.

Make a call to the church office if you are planning a visit at another time than during services to avoid meeting closed doors.
