    K.Y.S. - a strange catamaran

    by globetrott Updated Feb 7, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Take a closer look at this strange catamaran in the port of Kristiansand. It was built as an art-object in 2002 and sailed to Sweden already and through some canals in Germany and the Netherlands.
    In the port of Kristiansand you will also find a lot of traditional yachts and sailingboats of all sizes.

    Some other great buildings

    by globetrott Updated Feb 7, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Here you can see some other great building with interesting architecture, that you will see , whem you will take a walk through the old part of the citycentre of Kristiansand. It should be enough to dedicate about 1-2 hours to see the most interesting places, and most of them are conveniently situated quite close to each other.

    Oksøy lighthouse

    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.

    Camilla Collett (1813-1895) was a famous norwegian novelist, and she was born in Kristiansand. You will see her monument next to the fortress, in a park by the sea.

    the øya is a small ferry that travels between Kristiansand and Lillesand. It's a beautiful trip. You can take the bus back.
