441 Reviews
Oslo Cathedral (Oslo Domkirke)
Consecrated in 1697, Oslo Cathedral (Oslo Domkirke) is used for Norwegian Royal Family weddings and funerals. The public is also welcome to admire its interesting architectural details, including a 1950 tempera ceiling by Hugo Louis Mohr, stained glass windows by Emanuel Vigeland, and magnificent altarpiece with acanthus carvings.

The Basics
Oslo Cathedral is the main church for the Church of Norway Diocese of Oslo. Elements original to its construction include the pulpit, organ front, and altarpiece—a 1748 model of The Last Supper and the Crucifixion. Dating from the 1850s, the bazaar halls (Basarhallene) behind the cathedral periodically host markets and cafés. A variety of group and private tours of Oslo—including by bus, foot, and Segway—visit the cathedral as well as the city’s other top sights. Shore excursions generally also stop here. If traveling independently, book ahead for a guided tour of the cathedral.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Entrance is free.
  • The cathedral is accessible to wheelchair users.

How to Get There
Oslo Cathedral is located on Stortorvet Square, just north of Oslo’s main street, Karl Johans Gate. It’s an easy 5-minute walk from Oslo Central Station and a 15-minute walk to the Royal Palace.

When to Get There
Oslo Cathedral is open from 10am to 4pm Saturday through Thursday and 4pm Friday until 6am Saturday. Masses are held on Sunday morning and Wednesday and Friday afternoons.
