Oslo Cathedral (Oslo Domkirke), Oslo

3.9
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. Oslo Cathedral (Oslo Domkirke) is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Oslo Edition.

  • It is a cathedral built in the 17th century. The interior is very different from any other church, but the paintings are beautiful! It is not full of gold works like the Portuguese and Spanish churches, but it is very special in its own way. I recommend the visit, even because the Church is always open!

  • When I hear about the cathedral, I can't help but think of the shape of the church, but it's a little different here, and there's something powerful about it. To be honest, the inside was not left to the special impression, but the appearance is very impressive.

  • A small and beautiful example of Catholic church. The interiors are very classy and beautifully designed. A must visit especially for a service if your a follower of the faith. Located in a busy street surrounding it are all famous shopping brands and world famous food chains. A must visit when in Oslo.
  • Amazing church. Fascinating to see how different depictions of Christian motifs vary from Bizantine and general European churches. There are days when a nice market happens in the courtyard. Check it out definitely
