Nice church, not a must see. Lovely paintings on the ceiling, unfortunately poorly maintained. The outside has been renovated. Nice for a quiet stop when shopping.

We attended Dec. 24, 2016 service with Oslo Boys Choir singing Lessons and Carols Christmas Eve Service and Dec. 25, 2016 High Mass (in Norwegian) with organ prelude and postlude (J.S.Bach) and brass trio. Both services were beautiful and well-attended. It was good to arrive early (up to 1 hour) as the church filled quickly.

A simple cathedral with little, but entrancing decoration. Worth popping in, but not making a special journey to do so.

Happened to walk in while they were tuning the piano (it was stated as organ tuning but nah, it's just the grand piano). The interior of the cathedral is simply splendid and very serene. Many tourists just come in to soak in the serenity as they sit at the altars and say a prayer or two. There are candles that... More

I attended the morning service on the first Sunday in advent and although it was in Norwegian it was easy to follow as everything was in a leaflet provided. The choir was beautiful as were the lights and it was even heated. All of the senior roles in the service were delivered by women. As a bonus many people young... More

It's a very small but attractive church. Nothing grand. But easily accessed as it's located in the centre of town.

I read about its ceilings and stained glass, so we came there in the morning just for a few minutes. And I wasn't disappointed. The ceiling looks quite unusual, the whole view is nice. And if you're tired, there's a cafe just outside :)

It is an interesting Lutheran church. There are concerts played here and it is also used for Royal and state functions. It is an austere place.

There's not much special about this church, mainly due to it being Lutheran. It is simple inside and a concert was being set up when we went in. I'm sure that it would be great when a concert is being played.

I got the sense that this cathedral was very important to the Norwegians when religion was important to the people. But the importance of religion is eroding in this part of the world. The Norwegian Government and the Royal Family use this facility for Royal and State functions. By comparison to other European places of worship, it is relatively austere... More
