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.
