The cathedral is centrally located and open until about 5pm in November. It has an open wooden interior, painting at the altar and 2 stain glass windows (wasn't able to view the latter as I always visited in the dark). Worth a quick look when you are in town.

I loved my second visit to Tromso, walking over the bridge to the cathedral as well as sitting watching the boats. The trip on the cable car was fantastic!!!! and we saw the Northern Lights !!!!

The 150 years old church looks a lot like any German protestant church. It's rather serene and doesn't look too bad but it isn't always open for visit.

Tromso Domkirke might be the second most recognizable structure in the city. It looks old, classy & photogenic. You can freely roam outside & even inside. Go in, pray for sometime, admire the beautiful structure, take some pictures & enjoy the serenity. Do not disturb other people by making clicking sounds though,

The church is in the middle of the centre, so it is likely you will pass is anyway. Take a look inside, its an old wooden church - really nice. Nothing majestetic like Nidarosdomen in Trondheim, but nice. You can spend 10-15 minutes there, look around, may lit a light in the globe and think of someone you have dear.

Nice and cozy church in the middle of Tromsø, open to the public every day. This church is subject to many weddings and funerals during the year.

It's pretty big for an old wooden building and it's nice to look at, but otherwise unimpressive. I didn't go inside though so maybe I missed something?

This is the cathedral for Tromso. Built by Tromso merchants from the profits of their trade with Russia, this is a wooden building that is welcoming although it does have erratic opening times outside of service times. In July it has daily organ concerts which demonstrate the great acoustic in this wooden building. Gives a glimpse into Tromso when all... More

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
