Kristiansand is "capital of southern Norway" and is Norway's 5th largest town.

The idyllic town of Kristiansand has a lot to offer their visitors. For the children a visit in the large zoo- and amusement park "Dyreparken" is "a must" when visiting the town.

Kristiansand is a popular town for many Norwegians in the summer because of its usually warmer climate and coastal feel. By the docks you can enjoy a ice cream in the summer, and the town also offers some good shopping in "Markens", the main shopping street.
