A historic landmark you will want to visit while exploring the Nordnes peninsula is Nykirken Church. The New Church is a bit of a misnomer today because it was originally consecrated in 1622. The parish church was ravished by fire in 1756 and then rebuilt. The date on this clock and bell tower is 1761. Nykirken was again destroyed during WWII when the German ship ST Voorbode exploded at a nearby quay. You will be surprised by the décor when you walk inside. Much of the decorations were created by children. Hence, it is often called the Children’s Cathedral.
