Kristiansand suffered a major fire in 1892 which destroyed most of this Norwegian town. Surprisingly, several blocks of small wooden row houses survived. This Old Town neighborhood consists of a grid pattern of streets and cobblestone sidewalks. Soldiers who used to live in these modest, one-story homes called it Posebyen. In French this means to rest or relax. That is exactly how you will feel as you explore this charming flashback into Norway’s history.
