Kristiansund is a rather new town, at least its buildings are since it was pretty much bombed out by the Germans in World War II.
We stayed only one night, but had trouble finding our hotel. Bob thought the hotel must be located near the wharf where the Hurtigruten docks. Wrong. Instead was located across the harbor on another of the three main islands that make up Kristiansund. After a quick call to the hotel for directions we found the hotel, crossing another graceful bridge.
Before the bridge you had to use the Sunbåt, the ferry service which Kristiansunders boast was the first mechanized public transport in the world. I'm not sure about that, and the fact that it stopped running at 4:30 p.m. on a Saturday meant I couldn't partake in the nightlife, such as it is, of central Kristiansund. Instead I settled for a delicious sunset, along with another cigar.
