Small park a short 15 minute walk form the centre of town with beautiful scenery and the cities best burger restaurant. Climb to the viewpoint and down again and enjoy a lunch at Cafe Generalen after.

We took our dog here and walked a few trails. There is a cafe over looking a lake with a nice sitting area outside. The only animals we saw were two swans on the lake. It's very pretty but not very big. Free parking and entry.

Ravnedalen is really beautiful, especially in summertime. I think it's a very good place to have a picnic, too. When you climb up you also get a great view of Kristiansand.

One of the most beautiful places in Kristiansand. Plus a hiking trail to the top with a nice view. There is a nice cafe, tasty burgers and concerts during the summer.

Arriving by cruise ship, we didn't see anything that we fancied. We decided to take a cab to Ravnedalen Naturpark and walk about to the city center! It is gorgeous. Beware that you should try to obtain a map to make your way back as its not all that clearly marked.
