Owner description: The Sundbaten boat - The world’s oldest public transport service in uninterrupted use. Part of Kristiansund’s cultural heritage and the world’s oldest means of public transport still in use. The first passenger boat service started up in 1876. A new boat - Angvik - was taken into service in 2005, and now service the harbour along with Rapp built in 1958. These small passenger ferries depart from the Piren pier at the foot of Kaibakken hill and run between the four «lands», as the four areas of Kristiansund are called. A roundtrip with the Sundbaten is a great way to experience Kristiansund. Explore different parts of the town with churches, galleries, klipfish museum and a vivid harbour life. Enjoy one of Kristiansunds strongest cultural monument at a very low price. Frequent departures on a daily basis (Sundays only from May-October). A round trip takes approx. 15-20 minutes and it makes a nice sightseeing tour of the harbour and surrounding area. On request the Sundbaten is available for charter, ie for groups. Guided tours, city walks and even more complex arrangements through the whole region is arranged on request.

Considering that Kristiansund is on various islands all connected by this water in between this ferry takes you to all of the various main areas. This mode of transport is one of the oldest in the world, older than San Fran's cable cars! It was a cool thing to experience and great for pictures of the city!

This boat is part of the local transportation in Kristiansund, which comes in very handy in a city consisting of several islands. I didn't have much time, but took the boat from the port in the city center and I believe during 20 minutes I was back in the same place. During this time I had seen the "whole" town with all the old houses and special architecture for the Norwegian coast. And bridges and boats and so on. A lovely trip that didn't cost much.

Sundbåten is the oldest public transport still running, and, beside being the best alternative to cross the port between the different parts of kristiansund, a must for the Kristiansund tourist. Very nice experience.
