Hakadal Church and Cemetery, Nittedal, Norway

I visited Hakadal Church in Nittedal, which is situated appr. 30 km north of Oslo, on a cold February day in 2010 in connection with a christening. It was not easy to take good photographs outdoors, as snow flakes landed on my camera lens all the time.

The present Hakadal kirke (church) was finished around 1610 and has been expanded and undergone restoration work several times.

It is not a good idea to visit cemeteries in Norway at winter time! I have to go back to Hakadal another time to take more photographs.

Altertavle (altar piece) from 1732.

Prekestolen (the pulpit), also from 1732.
