Loen Church (Norwegian: Loen kyrkje or Lokyrkja) is a parish church of the Church of Norway in Stryn Municipality in Vestland county, Norway. It is located in the village of Loen. It is the church for the Loen parish which is part of the Nordfjord prosti (deanery) in the Diocese of Bjørgvin. The white, wooden church was built in an octagonal design in 1838 using plans drawn up by an unknown architect. The church seats about 190 people.Plan your Loen Church visit and explore what else you can see and do in Loen using our Loen trip itinerary builder site.
There are two stone pillars in the churchyard that memorialize the local residents who died in 1905 and 1936 when the rock slides from the mountain Ramnefjellet caused tsunamis which flooded many farms surrounding the lake Lovatnet.

I walked up the hill to this nice little church. Beautiful altar and view but not much else. Worth the walk.

a attractive little church, dating back to the 1800's unfortunately it was closed on my visit so could not go inside, but a great looking church which has a great view looking over loen and the fjords
