Charming!

This is the town's official landmark. You really can't get lost in Tromso Island when you can spot the only Norwegian cathedral made of wood. It sits right along Storgata and has... read more

Having visited many, many churches and cathedrals in recent European trips, I didn't expect much in Tromso from the Domkirke. However, with its wooden architecture and simple but elegant elements, I found it unique and very worshipful. It is truly worth a visit!

This is the largest timber Cathedral in Norway ... it is quirky and quaint ... a unique experience. It is not particularly flash inside ... but worth a visit!

Beautiful cathedral, centrally located and it's easy to locate. Didn't had a chance to enter the church though.

It looked very inviting so we popped in. We tied a ribbon on the tree for peace. The wooden building was very nice, it looked great at night when lit up. There was a choir practise going on and it sounded lovely. Worth a visit.

We walked past the church on our way to another venue, and as it was daytime, we decided to go and have a look. We went inside, and it was just so beautiful. There was also a small tree inside, covered with little pieces of wool, as people could cut off from different colours of balls on a table, which... More

Clean, simple lines with bright light made this church a pleasant visit. A mini concert was underway, too.

Called in here as we passed by, stayed half an hour. A bright church with striking picture of Christ's resurrection and a piece of modern art that, for me, related to the theme of hope and life. There is a desk with information about the Church. And a candle stand where you can light a candle for someone on your... More

We couldn't get inside as it was locked. However it does look nice. It is right in the middle of town and can't miss it

I attended a classical music concert featuring voices from Russia complementing a Norwegian orchestra in this little, modest cathedral in Tromso. It was something I'll never forget. It's not fancy by any means, but it's comfortable to sit in for a while and the local people are very neighborly.
