Nidarosdomen, Trondheim
(4.2/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
Home of the grave of Norway's patron saint, Nidarosdomen stands as one of the country's most important religious sites and one of the largest medieval buildings in Scandinavia. Original construction started in 1070 over the resting place of Saint Olaf, and the church took on elements of both Gothic and Romanesque architecture over the centuries. Stop by the sizable cathedral to admire its dual bell towers and intricate facade, replete with arches, windows, and pillars. Explore the vaulted interior and its large stained-glass window section. Don't miss the crypt, which contains a multitude of medieval-era headstones found within the church. Plan your visit to Nidarosdomen and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Trondheim travel itinerary maker.

  • An amazing and affordable experience in Trondheim. Recommended for both visiting people and locally who haven't had a tour inside. I was there for a guided tour and organ concert, and both were amazin...  more »
  • Special bridge on the edge of the city centre. Historical connection between the fortress and the old town.

  • Light and open cafè with stunning views over the cathedral.
  • Very helpful staff and interesting things to buy
  • After admiring the intricate outside of the church, pay the admission to enter and climb to the top. If you can stomach the steep & claustrophobic climb, you'll be greeted with 360' Trondheim views
  • Przepiekna gotycka katedra
  • A nice store but very expensive.
