Fastest and cheapest would be flying with Ryanair from Frankfurt (Hanh) to Oslo (Torp). Torp is not the main airport, but lies south of Oslo near the town Sandefjord. From Torp airport you take the bus from Fokserød Torp bus stop along the E18 road. It's about 5 min. by car from the Airport, a cab there might be the best solution for you. The bus runs several times a day and takes about 3,5 hours. Cost Adult 280 Nok, Kids 140 Nok (until the age of 16). It will take 2 more hours if taking the train.

There are daily flights with SAS (www.scandinavian.net) Frankfurt-Copenhagen-Kristiansand. If you are travelling from SIN with a Star Alliance airline, you might get a cheap "Visit Europe" or "Visit Scandinavia" air pass.
Also KLM (www.klm.com) operates daily flights Frankfurt-Amsterdam-Kristiansand.

Travel Tips for Kristiansand

GOOD RESTAURANT IS THE BAK...

by baileys

GOOD RESTAURANT IS THE BAK GARDEN WHERE YOU CAN TRY REINDEER!! THE LOCAL BEER, CB, IS WITHOUT ANY CHEMICAL TASTES AND I FOUND THAT I COULD DRINK LOADS WITHOUT ANY HANGOVER THE NEXT DAY!! I WENT TO KRISTIANSAND IN THE WINTER AND FOUND THE SCENERY BEAUTIFUL ESPECIALLY WHEN IT SNOWED ON MY 3RD DAY THERE! ABSOLUTELY BREATH-TAKING! ALSO THE AIR SEEMS TO BE SO MUCH CLEARER, CRISPER THAN ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD THAT I'VE BEEN - THE WATER TOO

The bible belt of Norway

by Saagar

Ohhhh, this is a conservative stretch of Norway.... This is materializing itself as strict liquor laws, many "bedehus" (prayer houses") and churches, a conservative twang in politics and strong presence of the Norwegian Christian Democratic Party in local politics and culture. It is indeed a strong cultural factor. However, this also breeds a counter culture, which is quite evident in festivals and cultral "pockets". As a traveller you will not encounter much of the practicalities of this conservativism - if anything, the difficulity in purchasing alcohol...

Oksøy lighthouse

by Synch_X

I spotted this little lighthouse as the ship was pulling out of the harbour. Here's a few facts I found out about it. It was established in 1832 and the present lighthouse was built back in 1900. It stands 118 feet tall with it's focal plane standing 154 feet high. It is still currently used for navigating ships in and out of the harbour.

"A taste of the south"

While not the southernmost city in Norway - the prize for this achievement goes to neighbouring Mandal town - Kristiansand is located approximately at the southern tip of Norway and has a definite southern outlook.
The Danish influence in planning and architecture from colonial days, the current transportation links with Denmark, Sweden, UK, all makes this into a city that looks south for inspiration and business rather than north. Kristiansand has an old, central town centre that is very nice, old wooden houses. This "Kvadraturen" centre alone is worth a visit. Many travellers also hit the good restaurants in town or lokk around in the surrounding areas. Lots of Norwegian families come with children to visit the nearby Dyreparken family entertainment park.

"Entry/exit Norway in the south"

Coming from the Continent or UK, or even flying in from afar, Kristiansand is an easy southern entry/exit point. Very few traffic complications here. From Kristiansand you can head straight north into the hills and mountains and access Setesdalsheiene and Hardangervidda mountain plateaus. From here, proceed east to the valleys and mountains and the cities of the Oslo fjord and Oslo basin, or west and visit Hardanger and Bergen.
Or go west from Kristiansand and then curve north along a beautiful stretch of coast to Stavanger. Likewise, you can choose to hang out at Sørlandet ("The Southern Counties") if the weather is nice and sample the very nice stretch of coast between Lista to the west and Risør to the east.

"You can come to Kristiansand unprepared..."

... and still have a field day. It's an easy place to get organised and a fun place to take things as they come.
There are easy communications (planes, trains, buses, car routes), plenty of things to do and see, good and plentyful accommodation, many restuarants and generally something for everyone. That doesn't make the place undistinguished - it has a great identity and is high on self-esteem.
The available info is good and you're in for an easy start.
Check www.sorlandet.com to see what's on offer. Just note that the mentioned hotels and restaurants are members of "Destination Sørlandet" and that there are more than those members around.
Also check the municipality pages: www.kristiansand.kommune.no

A beautiful town

by marciaca

"Wow"

Krisitansand is a gorgeous town in Norway. It is located very near the southern tip. It is a town of about 70-80,000 people.

Everything about this town is so nice. I would love to have a house here. It was about 68F and sunny the whole time I was here.
