Oslo Cathedral (Oslo Domkirke), Oslo

(500+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Historic Site
Oslo Cathedral (Oslo Domkirke) provides a serene place where you can take part in a service and light a candle. It also hosts public celebrations and royal events. The 17th-century Baroque church was restored to its original interior in 1950, on the ninth centennial of Oslo. See the authentic altarpiece with the painting of the Last Supper, the pulpit, and the christening font carved with acanthus leaves. During the restoration, the floor was covered with marble stones and brickwork, and all furnishings were refurbished. Be sure to look up and view the ceiling paintings, works by a 20th-century Norwegian artist that depict different scenes from the life of Jesus Christ. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Oslo holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Oslo Cathedral (Oslo Domkirke) and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • It's an alright Cathedral. Looks ok, but the best thing here is that you can often see concerts at a very reasonable price. Acoustics are not great here though.
  • very nice and friendly staff! And a lot of public events there, check the website to get the schedules or just passing by, maybe surprise you~
  • Nice cathedral, maybe a bit smaller than one would expect.
  • Worth a visit if you're new to Oslo. This is where the crown Prince got married.
  • not say its ugly.. but not ultimate beautiful too... I will say a simple cozy cathedral. Far away from impressive.
