Nidarosdomen, Trondheim

(1,500+ reviews on the web)
Church Tourist Spot
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.

  • My wife and I were here on a rainy day and were debating the merits of walking to the Cathedral. Fortunately we did. It was majestic. I highly recommend the free tours inside. They are very informativ...  more »
  • A beautiful cathedral with an interesting history. Furthermore, the park surrounding it is an attraction in itself. A must-see.  more »
  • We really liked the detail in this cathedral. The original church which is Romanesque became the transept with gothic addition. Wonderful sculptures in the pillars. The baptismal font is a celebration...  more »

  • This gothic cathedral is probably the most famous tourist attraction in Trondheim, and a must see. There's no ticket charge if you don't want a guided tour (though I would highly recommend it). The artistic architectural style, handcrafted ornaments sculptures and mosaic makes this on of the most photogenic buildings in Norway.
  • You buy tickets to enter the churches here, there's also a pretty pricy cafe
  • Gothic church. Flagship must see Trondheim. Fyi. A angel on the left high up statues face is modeled after Bob Dylan. Neat huh?
  • If you visit Trondheim, you have to visit this place. It's fantastic.
  • Nice place to have a look round.
