    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Kristiansand is known as a good summer place, with nice weather, appearantly Norway's only palm trees, and a great music festival.

    Kristiansand is a town that is surrounded by nature. There are plenty of hiking opportunities around Odderøya, which was once a Naval Base overlooking the sea as well as Ravnedalen Park which surrounds much of the city.

    Despite it's location, Kristiansand is well serviced by public transport with trains leaving regularly to Oslo and Stavanger, not to mention, regular ferry links to Hirtshals, Denmark.
