There’s no finer way to connect with a city than by taking a leisurely stroll through its historic streets. On this tour, you’ll meet up with a local guide for a narrated walk that departs directly from the pier and leads into the oldest reaches of Kristiansand. Founded in 1641 by King Christian IV, wandering the city’s narrow lanes is like stepping back in time. You’ll amble through the Old Town known as Posebyen, where the streets cut through at strict right angles and the past is still very much on display in the largest collection of wooden houses in Northern Europe. Hear tales of Kristiansand’s early years, including the devastating fire of 1892, as you wind past the old Post Office and other historic facades on a walk through this living museum. Your tour will conclude back at the ship.
