We have decided to see the cathedral before leaving, as it was a quick road from our accommodation - we did not regret! If you get to see it at night it is even better!

We looked at it from the outside on our way back from the fjellheisen. It's nice and modern, but it looks more special from the distance at night/well, in the dark. To get in you have to pay, but I wouldn't know what for. You...More

We joined the group from the Cruise liner Budicca and went to the Cathedral for a short operatic concert and of course to look at the Cathedral. The music was very good and singer was first class. The building itself is unique. Looks a like...More

Most impressive viewed from the outside and across the water. The stain glass window is striking but the rest of the Church is stark. I prefer the delightful wooden church in the city centre.

If it hadn’t been my 60th birthday, I might not have paid such a steep price (app. $50 for two tickets) for a concert that lasts just 30 minutes. But I wanted to end the day with something special, and this did turn out to...More

The cathedral is quite nice but extremely underwhelming and, in my opinion, not worth the entrance fee if there is no concert going on. We went in, spent probably 10 minutes looking a the stained glass and then left.

We visited here for the midnight concert arranged by hurtigruten, what a beautiful evening. It is an amazing structure being such an unusual shape, the acoustics are fantastic, perfect for the organist, pianist, saxophonist and singer to perform in. A great place to visit even...More

I don't like churches where I have to pay an entry fee - and in this case we did pay. It was not worth paying 50 NOK to enter the church, you can see the altar through the window - you don't see much more...More

We went there during the day and walked from near the terminal to the Cathedral. It took about 30 minutes to walk over the bridge to the cathedral.
