Fredriksvern Church reviews
A very picturesque church from the 18th century. The walls are red and yellow. Above the entrance is the coat of arms of Fredrik 5. There is also a cemetery behind the church.
Nice old church.
Fredriksvern Church (Stavern Church) from 1756 is the first garrison church in Norway, and with its yellow and red walls in Rococo style is a worthy representative of the country's church buildings from this period. Fredriksvern Verft was built in 1750, and the church was then built as a garrison church and consecrated six years later. The church is built in rococo style from Dutch brick, and has a dark blue exterior, glazed roof. Due to salt from the brick causing damage to the walls, the walls were whitewashed inside and out. Today's appearance is a rehabilitation of the church from the 1880s, when the original colors were restored. The floor is shaped like a cross, and Fredriksvern church has the two-storey large altarpiece that it received for the consecration in 1756. The church has a hipped roof. Above the entrance door is Fredrik V.'s mirror monogram in typical rococo style, and on the outside is still the mechanical clockwork from 1756 which is wound twice a week. Would have liked to see inside but it was closed when I was there.
Fredriksvern Church is Norway's first garrison church, which was completed in 1756. A very special church with a well-kept cemetery. Fredrik 5's coat of arms is placed above the entrance. Concerts are held here regularly.
