Nidaros Cathedral is the national sanctuary of Norway. Work began in 1070, and the building was completed in about 1300. After being damaged by fire, it lay largely in ruins for several hundred years. In 1869 extensive restorations were begun, and a century later the cathedral was again restored to its original grandeur.

It is a nice church, but it is not that special. There is a small visitors center with a coffee bar and a souvenir shop. The church has a few paintings based on parts of the bible that were very nice. If you are in the neighbourhood, stop by.

I visited Trondheim this summer and was very impressed by the great, most Northern, cathedral. A true highlight of the city.

Nidaros Cathedral (Nidarosdomen) is incredibly imposing and powerful! – probably the most spectacular church in northern Europe (see my attached photos and you will understand). This is a must visit in Trondheim! Regards Svein-Magne Tunli from Bergen, Norway.

Actually went in 2010 on our honeymoon here. Beautiful cathedral and we'll worth the visit! The cafe next door was lovely too. Tried the weird cheese on a waffle there.

A visit to the around 1000 year old cathedral is a must if you're visiting Trondheim. Wether you are a religious person or not, I guarantee this visit will impress you, one way or another. You can feel its history, walking in there, well worth a visit.

The entrance fee is Kr80 per adult and no pictures are allowed to be taken inside, so we didn't visit the inside. The visitor centre in the grounds is welcoming and in addition to a good range of merchandise including some innovative items, there is a cafe and plenty of space. Outside the front facade is amazing with lots of... More

To get this most out of this trip, the guided tour is strongly recommended. Communicated in an an engaging and interesting manner, a lot was past on regarding culture, history and art within brief moments. It's a must.
