This beautiful church sits right in the heart of central Tromso and is within easy walking distance of most downtown hotels and attractions. Although we did not get a chance to go inside, the outside is remarkable for its architecture and striking presence. The grounds in front provide a nice open space, allowing the church to stand out more from... More

We visited the Tromso Domkirke one evening where there was some event happening. The people warmly invited us to attend the function and have soup. It is a beautiful place.

No visit to Tromso is complete without a visit to this Cathedral. I believe it is the last surviving wooden cathedral in Norway. I was so fortunate to visit at a time when I was able to have a personal conversation and tour with a staff member which I will never forget. From the outside the structure is quite impressive....

The only wooden cathedral in Norway. Very pretty from the outside, especially with all the snow around. Unable to go in as it was closed which was a shame. Stopped by whilst having a walk around Tromso city centre.

We walked past a few times but never saw any lights on – there was a fallen sign lying outside to say the church was closed to refit the organ. It is a nice building from the outside but we did not venture inside

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.
