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.

This is an obvious top ten sightseeing location in Norway and of course Trondheim's greatest tourist attraction by far. This is not a typical church in Norway and well worth a visit. Centrally located in Trondheim.

Even if you're not particularly religious, this cathedral is still worth looking at. The stain glass work is amazing, especially the Rose window.

When in Trondheim, you simply cannot miss the greatest cathedral in Norway. Built on the site of the grave of the Holy King Olav, who (supposedly) Christened Norway, this magnificent church with all the stained glass windows must be seen. It has been beautifully restored over hundreds of years, and there is a museum of the Bishops Residence close by... More

I enjoy the gothic style and the French influence statue on the front side. The cathedral was not open when I visited. Sure it is a sight to behold.

people who've already been to sophisticated cathedrals might get little disappointed, but worth visiting, since its known as the oldest chathedral in Scandinavia(I'm not sure precisely but) I heard that you can reach the bell tower only during the summertime! As far as I remember if you buy the ticket for the entrance (100nok) you can enter the museum right... More

Absolutely gorgeous cathedral. When we arrived it was before opening time and covered with snow. It was like something out if a fairy tale. The inside is one of the best I have seen in Europe. It also is now a special place for us as my boyfriend proposed to me out the front in the snow!

Definitely worth a visit here. The cathedral is reminiscent of those on continental Europe, which makes the architecture stand out even more from the rest of Norway. If possible, you should try to catch a choir concert here.

I visited Nidarosdomen as part of a private group. We were privileged to have a private organ concert. The cathedral is enormous, you truly feel small. The sound generated from the incredible organ is mind blowing. I will go again at the earliest opportunity.
