No visit to Tromso is complete without a visit to this Cathedral. I believe it is the last surviving wooden cathedral in Norway. I was so fortunate to visit at a time when I was able to have a personal conversation and tour with a staff member which I will never forget. From the outside the structure is quite impressive....

The only wooden cathedral in Norway. Very pretty from the outside, especially with all the snow around. Unable to go in as it was closed which was a shame. Stopped by whilst having a walk around Tromso city centre.

We walked past a few times but never saw any lights on – there was a fallen sign lying outside to say the church was closed to refit the organ. It is a nice building from the outside but we did not venture inside

Tromso Cathedral (Domkirke) which is noted for being the only wooden cathedral in Norway. The building is a beautiful historical one. The church is built in Gothic Revival style, with the church tower and main entrance. That is worth a quick visit.

A visit to this cathedral is well worth the effort. It is hard to rate this building as it is not a theme park, but a place of worship. It has a peaceful feel about it.

I did not go in and it looked close, however you cannot miss it, it is in the centre of town and is a beautiful building. Generally the building is good for photos on a nice day.

We tried on at least four occasions to get access and saw numerous other people try the door during our time in Tromso to no avail. It is advertised as being open from 1pm but the door was always locked.

Saw this lovely building on my first morning and it became our main landmark for getting about Tromso. Very beautiful from the outside, especially in snow
