Oslo’s third cathedral was built in 1697 after the first two burned down in fires. Both the Norwegian Royal Family and the Government use it for public events now. The architecture is Baroque. The highlights of the church are:

  • The large ceiling murals painted by Hugo Lous Mohr in the 20th century.
  • Stained glass windows by Emanuel Vigeland.
  • Pulpit and altar piece.
  • Organ front with acanthus carvings.

Though modest compared to the other great cathedrals around Europe, the church feels old and serene.

  • Totally different from a Catholic Church. However, you feel fine and in peace.

  • Nice Cathedral, worth paying a visit when you are in Oslo. I really liked the paintings on the walls and the ceiling.

  • It's an alright Cathedral. Looks ok, but the best thing here is that you can often see concerts at a very reasonable price. Acoustics are not great here though.

  • Pretty but simple.

  • very nice and friendly staff! And a lot of public events there, check the website to get the schedules or just passing by, maybe surprise you~
