Expats, digital nomads and retirees discuss what it is like to live in Kristiansand, Norway: Cost of living, Finding a home, Meeting People and more.
How do I meet people in Kristiansand?
When we asked people living in Kristiansand about club and activities where newcomers can meet others, they responded:
"American Women's Club is available, but not really functioning. After trying several churches we have found a Church with an American core to be the friendliest place in town! In southern Norway, (we lived in Oslo for 10 years my husband is Norwegian), the culture is tough to break into. It is almost stereotypical small town closed,"
said another expat in Kristiansand.
