Overview

When the famous Norwegian writer, Bjornstjerne Bjornson drove through Tynset, he heard the bells ringing from the church tower and this inspired him to write one of his most well-known psalms. Few churches have such a beautiful situation as the church at Tynset which can be viewed from all sides. The view from the hill on which the church is situated is excellent and certainly worth a visit. The road leading up to the church is called Vedalen. The name indicates that this has been place of heathen worship and rituals a long time ago. The church was consecrated in 1795, just three years after previous church burnt down. The first churches in Tynset were situated further up the slope, above the present day church. Here the first church that we know about was consecrated in1211. Today, there is a memorial stone placed on the site of this church.

I prefer visiting Churchs when they are used for the purpose they are built for. So evening mass on an august sunday should have been ideal. But with only 9 parishers gathered in this enormous Church, the only delight was the selection of the hymns...More

This church is located where you will get a gorgeous view of Glomma, Tronfjell and Tynset downtown. It is a large wooden church
