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 Edition.

  • A beautiful Lutheran church located right in the middle of central Oslo. Erected in 1697. Don't miss the carving on the outside that is over 1000 years old. The seal of Oslo greets you as you...

  • A haven of peace in the middle of the city. Unfortunately, we did not get inside the church, but it is also worth seeing the garden from the outside. There are also restaurants inside and outside. During the rain, we managed to take shelter in the pavilion.
  • Nothing really interesting. The church is small inside and doesn't make great impression. However it is the place where royal families take marriages so I would say that is it still worth visiting .
