Pulpit at Tingelstad Church

Tingelstad Church is a long church with a west tower, built in red-bricked tiles. It was constructed in 1866 after drawings by architects Heinrich Ernst Schirmer and Wilhelm von Hanno. It was restored in 1958 and 1991. The church is characterized by neo-Gothic architecture. The church is relatively large and richly designed.
