Pedestrian Street Named Markens Gate in Kristiansand, Norway

During the first two centuries of Kristiansand’s existence, this main boulevard was named Queen Street probably in honor of either Anne Catherine or Kristen Munk, the two wives of King Christian IV. This mostly pedestrian street is now Markens gate but the locals simply call it Markens. In addition to being a major shopping district, several of its historic buildings contain offices and apartments.
