Kristiansand Guide

The Norwegian city of Kristiansand is located in Vest-Agder county and is Norway's fifth largest city. The city was founded in 1641 by King Christian IV from who the city takes its name. The 'sand' component of the name refers to the sandy headland the city was built on. Many tourists visit the city, especially during the summer months, and of particular importance is Kristiansand Zoo and Amusement Park which is just to the east of the city. With just under 1 million visitors in 2012, the zoo is actually Norway's second most visited attraction, after Holmenkollen. Most of the zoo's animals are shown in their natural habitats. Animals on display include wolves, lions, tigers and lynx. Although the amusement park is open during the summer, the zoo is open all year round.

The city's port provides ferry connections to destinations in Sweden, Denmark and the UK. The two main routes that operate out of Kristiansand are to Gothenburg in Sweden, which begins and ends in Newcastle in the UK, and to Hirtshals in Denmark. The ferry terminal has good passenger facilities which include public telephones, toilets, a convenience store and good access for disabled passengers.


Hirtshals Guide

Hirtshals is a town and port located at the top of the Jutland Peninsular in northern Denmark and lies on the coast of the island of Vendsyssel-Thy. The town was developed around a man made harbour that was built between 1919 and 1931 and was connected to the rest of Denmark by a railway line, the Hirtshals-Hjorring line, in 1925. The town's fishing fleet is now one of the largest in Denmark and was facilitated by an expansion of the harbour in 1966, and along with tourism fishing plays an important role in the town's economy.

The town's shops are kept busy by passengers disembarking from ferries docking at the town's harbour. This is especially the case with Norwegian visitors who shop in the town year round. One of the most popular attractions in the town is the Nordsoen Oceanarium which is one of Europe's largest aquariums and contains over 70 different species in its collection.

Ferry services departing from the town's port depart to Bergen, Kristiansand, Stavanger, Langesund, Larvik, Seydisfjordur and Torshavn.
