Eastern Norway Østerdalen Tynset

The Church at Kvikne

Overview

If you are interested to see one of the finest altarpieces in the country and a church richly decorated, then you must visit the church at Kvikne. This cross-shaped church was built between 1652-1654 and it was restored between 1738-1739. The present church was probably built on the same site as the previous stave church. The stave church was too small in the period of prosperity of the copper mine, which prevented people moving away and made farming more profitable. The copper mining company donated timber to the church while local people did most of the building work. Jørgen Snekker is believed to have made the pulpit, while the altarpiece was probably made by Johan Bildsnider from Trondheim. The large painting on the alter is believed to have been painted by Johan Kontrafeier.
The church is open for guided tours in July.
