Overview

‘Bergstadens Ziir’ – better known as Roros Church – was built during the copperwork’s golden age ‘in God’s honour and as an adornment to the town. The church, which was completed in 1784, does justice to its name with its majestic location high above the timber buildings. The Directorate for Cultural Heritage regards the church as one of the ten most profiled churches in Norway. It is one of the country’s largest churches with seating for 1,600 people. The church has been newly opened after 2 years of extensive renovation and has now been restored to its former glory.

It is one of the most impressive churches I've seen. After the refurbishing, it is in very good shape. Opening hours for tourists could be better (and better published).

A must see when visiting Røros. Make sure you find out the opening times, so you don’t miss out on it. Often concerts in the evenings too!

A must see, incredible that such a small town can have such a big and well kept church. Do combine this with a visit to Roros museum and get more of the history of this place

What a wonderful church it is. We came to Røros for the very special Christmas Market, and came just in time for the lunch concert in the church. The room is much larger than I thought. It can seat up to 1600 people, and is...More
