You should not rush this visit since the experience of visiting the Nidaros Cathedral is thrilling and exciting. If you can attend a music or choir performance it is even greater.

If you're going to the Nidaros Cathedral, it makes sense to get the all-in ticket, which includes the Crown Jewels museum and the Archbishop's Palace. 150kr for all three is probably justified, but half of that for each individual part probably isn't. The cathedral itself is a magnificent building; when I was there they were just installing the new organ,... More

Beautiful building from the outside and quite plain on the inside with none of the tombs, plaques and statues you would find in english cathedrals ( though there is a small crypt with gravestones) It also has a modern suite of stained glass which is interesting. Guided tours are included and available in several languages. Didn't go up the tower... More

Didn't go on a guided tour but briefly rushed through. Seems like just another tourist trap even though magnificent building. Probably interesting history too if you are interested enough which we weren't unfortunately.

The view is great, and it's not that expensive, 30 kr. It's not so many stairs, less than 200. Still, if you have vertigo or claustrophobia you probably shouldn't, stairs are narrow.

The cathedral is absolutely stunning. Very beautiful from the outside, but even more overwhelming when you come in. Attended my nephew's wedding there which was beautiful.

We were fortunate to be here on a Sunday morning, and sat in on the worship service. Two choirs (one the boys choir, one a mixed choir) and pipe organ did a fantastic renditions of the "Hallelujah Chorus" at the end of the service. The reverberation echo in the cathedral is over two seconds long.

It is thought that masons who worked on English Cathedrals worked here. The cathedral is spectacular in its national status. A recent reconstruction of its colossal organ is one of the largest European projects of its kind. There is also a remarkable choral foundation. It is a pity that entry charges apply - even to pilgrims; however, the gides are... More

The Nidaros Cathedral is nice - well kept and has quite an interesting facade. The interior is beautiful as well, and is especially alluring given its connection to Norwegian history. Frustratingly you can't take photos.

There is no doubt that the Cathedral is the main sight and the focal point of the city. It is a magnificent Gothic cathedral. However the door guards are just bouncers and do not diferentiate between tourists and penitents. A disappointing attitude.
