Oslo Cathedral (Oslo Domkirke), Oslo

(3.6/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Cathedral but ... very small. However much attention to detail even if not "too full" of works of art. A visit is absolutely recommended

  • not say its ugly.. but not ultimate beautiful too... I will say a simple cozy cathedral. Far away from impressive.
  • It´s a not a very impressive cathedral, but it´s recommended to visit.
  • nice cathedral. Within the ancient frescoes painted over. Pity. Because I think, the new ones do not quite match the building's look.
  • All I wanted to say that this building has great placing and surroundings. Nothing special inside or outside though.
  • Not that much beautiful but worth to see
