Owner description: The Church of Our Lady in Trondheim was celebrating its 800th anniversary in 2007 on the evidence that the church was mentioned for the first time in written sources dating from 1207. It was restored in 1739, but parts of the thick walls of the Church are obviously much older. The church is always open for prayers, meditation or just a place to spend time.

“Peaceful”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Centrally location and the doors always open. A lovely welcoming sign inviting people in. They actually serve free teas and coffee there, for people to come in for a chat.

“Welcoming cosy church”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

The Church is not as large or as imposing as Nidarosdomen, but it is very warm and welcoming. The paintings around the altar are very impressive. This is an "Open Church" whose mission is to help those in need, whoever they may be. At the back of the Church, there are volunteers offering coffee or tea - free of charge - to all visitors. This Church is well worth visiting, and well worth supporting.

“Close to other church ruins”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

The Church of Our Lady or Var Frue has somehow survived for 800 years. It is on Kongens Gate very close to the town square. For history buffs if you walk down this street you will find some display panels describing other medieval churches which also once stood here. There was a Franciscan Friary - currently under the library and St Gregory or St Olav's church under a savings bank. You can visit the excavated remains when these two places are open.
