Mariakirken / St Mary's Church Tips (9)

Walk around the church exterior

This church was closed for restoration when we walked over to it from the Rosenkrantz tower residence. It was built in the early 12th century and is an example of Romanesque architecture. While the exterior is interesting due to the roofline and shapes, interiors of the old churches are nice due to the art. This is a small church that can be walked around in a few minutes.

Mariakirken

I remember this enormous stone church stand in our way as we walked along one of the main streets of Bergen. It was truly imposing, so I thought I'd better take a picture of a part of it, the fantastic Romanesque portal framing the entrance. It was past four o'clock and the church was closed, another disappointment that day. So we didn't see the beautiful altar or the Baroque pulpit, which I found on the Web later. In fact, I had even forgotten the church's name and had to ask FletteMette for its name. Thanks, Mette.
Mariakirken or St.Mary's Church is a basilica and dates back to the early 12th century, which makes it the oldest building in Bergen.

Mariakirken

The fantastic church of Mariakirken was built in the 12th century with a Romantic-Norman style. On the facade you can see two high towers and a door with many decorations. Inside the church has got three aisles with square pillars. You can see very nice Baroque forniture with the fantastic pulpit built in 1676; over the altar there is a tryptic made by the Lubeck's school between the 15th and the 16th century.
The church was used for century by the inhabitants of the Hansa and in the 1868 was celebrated the Holy Mass in Norwegian langauge.

Mariakirken

Mariakirken/St. Marys church was the church that the German Hansa used as their parish church. It has some remainders of that. Like many churches in Norway the interior was paintet with white chalch during the reformation, but some of it is pealing of. You can see it particulary clearly on the northern wall.

If I were you I'd have a good look at the pulpit as well.
