Oslo Cathedral (Oslo Domkirke) provides a serene place where you can take part in a service and light a candle. It also hosts public celebrations and royal events. The 17th-century Baroque church was restored to its original interior in 1950, on the ninth centennial of Oslo. See the authentic altarpiece with the painting of the Last Supper, the pulpit, and the christening font carved with acanthus leaves. During the restoration, the floor was covered with marble stones and brickwork, and all furnishings were refurbished. Be sure to look up and view the ceiling paintings, works by a 20th-century Norwegian artist that depict different scenes from the life of Jesus Christ. Oslo Cathedral (Oslo Domkirke) is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.

  • We only viewed the cathedral from the outside. The building itself is pretty, but it's obscured by many electric wires running everywhere above the streets

  • This is a fantastic place of worship and reflection. When you study the ceiling mural you can notice several “Easter eggs”, in the photo you will see an extra pair of hands, but to whom do they belong? Please take communion regardless of your domination and join us for a free cup of coffee after each Sunday service. You are always welcome.
  • Very beautiful. I attended a Friday Mass there by the Church of Norway and it was very interesting experiencing so much familiarity in the liturgy yet not knowing what exactly was going on because of the language.
