"the belfry" Norway Things to Do Tip by globetrott

Norway Things to Do: 771 reviews and 1,349 photos


This is the belfry of the stave-church / Stabkirke of Borgund, a simple wooden construction. Most of the stave-churches had seperate bell-towers, maybe because of the special construction of these churches that would not allow any heavy bells hanging on the construction that is only made vertically instead of horizontally like a block-house would be.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
