A most beautiful large wooden church, right in the middle of town, only a 5 minute walk from where the Hurtigruten boats dock. As soon as you walk in, there is a lovely peaceful atmosphere. There is also a gorgeous smell of wood, even though the church is over 150 years old. Lovely pictures and carvings too.

The church is nice enough and the location is good, but the church is too new and too "sparse" to impress. It is probably not designed to impress. At best you could say it is functional and not ugly.

Church is located in the centre of town and you would not miss it anyhow. The polar night half marathon was held when we were there, and the church was closed so we couldn't go in. Simply put, this was a small and quaint little church, but I would still prefer the other stave churches in Norway anytime.

The Cathedral does not seem to be open very much, we were lucky, a wedding was being prepared and we got a chance to see the inside. Well worth a visit

The Domkirke is a reasonably interesting historical/architectural site to visit. When we went the organist was practicing and that was real luck - a wonderful ad hoc pipe organ concert on a very impressive instrument.

It looks really nice from the outside and being right in the centre of town you're almost certain to come across it. It really is worth the effort to have a look inside with it's wooden balcony it is a really nice church.

The Domkirke is beautiful with a painted ceiling and stained glass windows. Sit for a while and enjoy the quietness of this place. It is well worth a stop here.

I love old wooden architecture, old churches.. too bad it was close. It would be nice to visit the interior too... northern most protestant church in the world made it more special.
