Norway's largest stave church built in the 1200s and still in use. Rose paintings from 1600's, "bishop's chair" and incence vessels from mediavel times. Guided tours in English, exhibition in the vicarage barn, open prallel with the guided tours. Cafeteria serving hot and cold meals. Church servises and "quiet room".

Heddal stave church, a masterwork of wood, is the largest of the 28 stave churches in Norway today. The church lies along the E-134 west of Notodden, on the way to Seljord-Haugesund. It was built in the early 13th century and is still in use.

Around the year 1250 the expanded with a larger apse as we see it today. Ore-pine from the woods in Heddal, beautiful carved portals and inventory indicates of a blossoming age in Heddal at the time. The church is used for ordinary events in the summer.  Next to the church lies a vicarage barn with a summer and church exhibition. Cafe Olea is stationed in the first floor and has the same opening hours as the stave church. Here you are able to dine after a spectacular day in Heddal. 

The church could be closed on saturdays and sundays due to weddings. Please contact us in advance for any group orders.

Heddal stave church doesn't just look like it comes from a fairytale. It is a fairytale.
