It was located in the centre of Tromso. It definitely was a spot because there were not many attractions in Tromso. I encountered the wedding ceremony and the snowy weather and cathedral made it more romantic. The night view of the cathedral was quite beautiful (compared with the surroundings).

We just managed to get here before closing time - such luck! Loved the simplicity of the church and seeing wooden churches so far north! Well worth the visit!

Authentic and simple, practically without decoration the church lives from the wooden construction, its big size (for a wooden church) and its history (constructed 1861). We liked the calmness inside and the setting in the middle of the city on a nice square lined with traditional buildings.

Worth spending a few minutes here - quite a pretty church. Also a good place to shelter in a snowstorm!

We couldn't go inside but it is an attractive and photogenic wooden church to walk around the outside of. You can see the spire from different parts of Tromso.

Just a modern church made of wood. Easy and simple. Squared, warm, no paintings, no art, no nothing. Nice but nothing special at all.

This immaculately maintained wooden structured Cathedral in the heart of Tromsø provides an oasis of peace away from the madding crowd and the elements.

The Tromso Domkirke is the northernmost Protestant cathedral in the world. It is home to about 6 hundred paruisioners. This lovely Wooded Church nestled in town takes you back a century and half with it's architecture and adornment. It is very typical of the churches of of this era and area both with it's simplistic design and trappings. I believe... More

Having been to the Oslo Cathedral and the Vatican as well as other European cities, this is not the most beautiful cathedral in the world. However the Tromso Cathedral is unique for being built from mostly wood materials in the Gothic style. When we visited this winter, the cathedral will open for pre-arranged groups. As there were few tourists, we... More
