Beautifully preserved. Read about its history and the specialness of its blue interior. A tour guide with more information is helpful. Also explore the graveyard on the church grounds.

It is one of the most impressive churches I've seen. After the refurbishing, it is in very good shape. Opening hours for tourists could be better (and better published).

A must see when visiting Røros. Make sure you find out the opening times, so you don’t miss out on it. Often concerts in the evenings too!

Amazing to find that Røros Church is Norway's fifth largest church, and has about 1600 seats. The church was consecrated on 15 August 1784 by Bishop Marcus Fredrik Bang. It was paid for by the Roros Copper Works. We were not able to go inside...More
