The only wooden cathedral in Norway.

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.

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.

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

I visited Tromso between Christmas and New Year. Fortunately, this beautiful wooden church was open for an evening Christmas service (in English). Traditional carols were sung and it was a very special extension of Christmas. Afterwards, I was invited to join the congregation for Christmas porridge and biscuits and was made extremely welcome.

This church is the middle point of Tromso down town. It is an old, wooden church built in the typical scandinavian style with wooden slats painted in bright color. Really nice to see, if you visit Tromso you will pass by during a stroll through the city anyway.

You have to be lucky and find the church open because there are no official opening hours. The building is a typical wooden church. Nothing special.

Amazing city with lots of snow even in May. We went around to the places in and around Tromso and we had a memorable trip.
