Guided city walk in Kristiansand

When visiting a new city I always use some time just walking around to see the sights. With a experienced city guide you learn much more about the history of the city, the hidden gems and some local knowledge that it is hard to get from a guidebook.
"Posebyen" is the old part of the city of Kristiansand
I was invited to join one of the guides from the Guide Association (Guideforeningen) / Kristiansand tourist office as she showed a group from the cruise ship “Crystal Symphony” around in the city center of Kristiansand, Southern Norway.
We were lucky to get invited inside one of the old houses by a charming couple. This was a a highlight for the tourists!
The group was around 25 American and Asian tourists that were very interested in Norwegian culture and how we live our life as Norwegian citizens.
The owners take care and pride of their houses in the old town.
The duration of the guided city tours is 1-2 hours. If you are a group you can order it through 
Full speed ahead!
After the city walk we drove on to Kristiansand Cannon Museum, we will blog about that later. 
Beautiful day in Kristiansand
Town square with the tourist office in the town hall (red building).
Kristiansand cathedral 
Inside Kristiansand Cathedral - often with free organ concerts. 

"Markens" - the main shopping street. Buses or the city train transported the cruise tourists back to the ship.
