Maihaugen – The Stave Church

Welcome to the Stave Church in the Open-Air Museum Maihaugen in Lillehammer, Norway. I want to show you this beautiful architecture as a part of this very nice museum.

The origin of this Stave Church that originally stood in Garmo dates back to the 12th century. It was set up in the museum in 1921 after taken down from its original place in 1880. Almost the entire interior is collected from various other churches.

Stave Churches are nowadays very connected to Norway and an important medieval architecture. In the past they were not only limited to the area of Norway. Fur further information I linked you some sources at the end of the blog.
