Washington Island Stavkirke reviews
This was absolutely gorgeous. It is closed due to covid but still so pretty to see the structure and the uniqueness of the building. more »
The interior of the church is closed but there is enough light that one can look through the front door and get a very good look on the inside. Directly across from Trinity Lutheran Church at 1763... more »
A bit hard to find; but well worth it. This church/temple is a structure of spirituality and power. It is, most definitely, a beautiful building that was lovingly built by true craftsmen. As a long time carpenter, I was amazed at the skill and materials that were necessary in building this landmark. A most photogenic place on an island that makes you glad you have a digital camera, as you will find yourself wanting to take multiple pictures from all angles inside and out. No bathrooms or other amenities, just an awesome (I don't use that word lightly) place with a high wow factor. You can let your imagination run and visualize Odin marrying Frigga here. There is also a nice birding trail that takes you into the surrounding woods. If you find yourself on Washington Island make sure you visit this astonishing place. There is no fee to go there.
Beautiful replica of a Norwegian church. We heard the story of its inception from some locals and it made it even more charming. This church was built by a community effort and its stunning. If you are visiting Washington Island this is a must see.
