  • close to the Tirpitz Museum, surrounded by a lovely cemetery with a cairn to British Navy men who died during one of the attacks on the Tirpitz, you may even meet reindeer in the cemetery (we did)

  • Beautiful old church in Norway. Best part were the heated pews!
  • Nice place for a short visit with a historically important graveyard.
