Trondheim was our first stop in Norway on our Iceland/Norway cruise. Since we only had about 5 hours we decided to do it on our own. The Cathedral is about a three mile round trip from the port so we decided to take the hop-on-hop off tourist bus. BUT. It was not running yet. So we opted for the local... More

Guide inside had good information. We went back for the 1 p.m. organ concert and enjoyed hearing those 9000 pipes in action. The organist played a variety of pieces that showed off the instrument. Guide told the historic background of the cathedral and St. Olaf.

I had no idea I would find a cathedral in the north of Norway...who would think that Protestant Norway would have such a Catholic looking wonder in Trondheim. I thought I was in Italy for a second. On closer look however, you could see the Norwegian character allover this lovely cathedral that rivals any I've seen all over Europe. It... More

This is a beautiful place, and unlike some reviewers we found the staff most helpful and pleasant, including the young priest who was reading the same book as my partner. It was wet and miserable when we arrived at the Cathedral but once inside that all changed, The marvelous stained glass windows The Alter and the Organ, but still cant... More

The church is one of most beautiful churches that you will see in Norway. The major chunk of its beauty comes from the beautiful statues and the intricate works. The garden is also very impressive. I loved hearing the choir practice their and I think it made my visit to the place all the more interesting. There is also a... More

This cathedral is extremely beautiful, both the exterior and the interior. It costs a little bit if you want to go inside the cathedral, but there are free organ conserts (that are fantastic) once in a while, so if you keep an eye out beforehand, you might be able to see it without paying for it. Otherwise, I recommend the... More

Very good tour but found that the guides and other staff didn't seem to know information beyond what was given in the tour of the cathedral.

The combo ticket gets you into the Cathedral & two adjoining museums. Interesting interior with nice windows. The place was packed with tourists in the morning, which made the visit less fun. Would suggest visiting later in the day. We liked the statues on the front of the church, including those of people holding their heads in their hands (beheaded,... More

This is a fabulous cathedral. The carvings above the west door are superb. The stained glass was inspired by Chartres and is beautiful…plenty of it, too. The views from the tower are wonderful but it is not an easy climb.

We visited in early July 2014 on a bright sunny day. This was certainly a highlight of our visit to Trondheim. We were lucky enough to arrive when a free concert was underway. Amazing to hear Game of Thrones theme tune on a church organ. Cafe in the grounds recommended for a refreshment break.
