Kristiansand ferry port

Kristiansand's ferry terminal is on one side of the Kvadraturen - the 1 kilometer square centre of the city, with straight streets, laid out in the 17th century.
Kristiansand and the south coast area - known as Sørlandet - are very popular holiday destinations, as well as being a gateway to the rest of Norway.
