Tromsø Cathedral is notable since it is the only Norwegian cathedral made of wood - one of Norway's biggest wooden churches, and probably the northernmost Protestant cathedral in the world. The church is built in Gothic Revival style, with the church tower and main entrance on the west front. It is located in the middle of the city of Tromsø... More

Beautiful wooden church in pale yellow and white trimmings. I have not seen a church quite like it ever.

Utterly stunning place that you'll never, ever, ever forget in three lifetimes! There's just something so special about Tromso - I can't do the place justice, so just GO THERE!

Why not go there, if you are nearby? Plus, the main street is quite pleasant to take a stroll and enjoy the views over the old houses!

Tromsø Domkirke is located right in the middel of the small city center. I dates back over 100 years, and has survived all the city fires. It is a well preserved, simple wooden building, but I felt warmly welcome inside. Very easy to find peace with yourself. During the summer season there is an organ concert at 5pm with an... More

Although the Arctic Cathedral gets all the press, we were quite pleased with our visit to the Tromso Domkirke. We arrived in Tromso on a Sunday via a cruise ship and decided just to ramble around the city and see what we could find. Before Sunday services we toured the cathedral.The church built in 1861 is the only wooden Norwegian... More

Listened to a concert in the church. The soloist played the organ. Nice acoustics. The church is well maintained and simply, but tasteful decorated. Staff was very friendly.

The town center with its walking street immediate to the church created a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for the town. Tromso Domkirke is accessible and open which reflected the overall architecture of the whole area. We spent more than an hour walking the street as well as its harbor. We noticed at the conclusion of all our walk, the church... More

Old wooden Lutheran Church built in 1861. It's worth the walk from the town center to take a look inside.

Small Catholic church built in 1861. It has a Neo-Gothic exterior. Inside is simply -- white and blue colors.
