Port of Kristiansand Passenger Lists

Kristiansand is a city, municipality and the county capital of Vest-Agder county in Southern Norway. Kristiansand grew into a major port during the 18th century, both due to its expanding ship building industry and its trade fleet. The city burned again in 1892.

As a neutral trade port, the economy of Kristiansand thrived during World War I, but the growth stagnated due to political decisions and the Great Depression of the late 1920s and 1930s.

During the attack on Norway 9 April 1940 it came to a battle between a German naval force and the Norwegian coast fortresses near Kristiansand. The city was occupied during the day and held by German forces the rest of World War II.
