“St. Mary's is the oldest building - 12th century”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

Disappointed that St. Mary's was closed for maintenance until 2015. It's right in the heart of the city center. Architecture is Romanesque.

“Being restaured”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Amazing church, with its Romanesque entrance and twin Towers. Sadly closed untill 2015 for restauration. One of Norway's oldest stone churches, from 1140. The oldest building in Bergen.

“Almost 900 years old church”
Reviewed 27 December 2011

and very much as it was then, except for the wonderful altar that was put up by the German merchants ca 500 years ago. Warm and colorful interior, you feel welcomed.

“Being remodeled but the exterior is still worth seeing”
Reviewed 14 August 2011

This church dates from about 1200, I believe, and the stone work
on the exterior is beautiful. It is currently being remodeled until about 2015 (major project!) so you can't go inside, but it's still worth walking by it if you're in Bergen
