Google Map of Stave churches in Norway

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


A stave church is a medieval wooden church with a post and beam construction related to timber framing. The wall frames are filled with vertical planks. The load-bearing posts (stafr in Old Norse, stav in Norwegian) have lent their name to the building technique. Related church types are post churches and churches with palisade walls.

All of the surviving stave churches except one are in Norway, but related church types were once common all over northwestern Europe.

In Norway, 28 historical stave churches remain standing. There are also a number of places where archaeological surveys have uncovered older post churches. There are also some newer stave churches at various locations.

In this collection you can find and see all, most of them can be seen in a link to Street View. A description of Wikipedia kan be seen too.
