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.

Fascinating history in this old cathedral - has had many reincarnations and still plays an important part in Norwegian culture. A combined ticket purchased from the centre beside the church will also allow you entry into the nearby Archbishop's museum and to see the royal...More

We got a combination ticket for the cathedral and the museum. We took the first English tour of the day which offered a good deal of information. They don't allow pictures which I don't understand why. My husband enjoyed the organ concert at 1pm. This...More

The guide (Emil) was speaking English with a smile, and did the outmost to spice up the legend of St. Olav, and I liked. He mixed knowledge with myths and stories from legends. The history of the cathedral came to life - it was funny!

The Nidarosdome is without a doubt Norway's most spectacular and beautiful cathedral. It has a gothic style, large colored glass panels and details all over. Fantastic craftsmanship! Take an audio tour and get to learn about the history, and climb the tower (if you're not...More

Not sure what to say really, other than that the Nidaros cathedral is a prime example of sublime Gothic architecture for which there is sometimes hard to find words. Standing in front of the main rose window gives you a sense of awe and admiration...More

Great place, but be aware of their opening hours. We missed it as they closes at 14:00 on a Saturday in high season :(

We walked over to the Cathedral while staying in Trondheim, and were glad we did, it's worth seeing. We got a combined ticket to see the church, museum, and crown jewels, all very nice (once you get the ticket, you can join the tours inside)....More

Well, the bad part is that a charge is made to enter the cathedral, yes you must pay to see and it is not cheap. Martin Luthur would be rolling over in his grave as the reason he left the Catholic Church and founded Protestism...More

The Hurtigruten ferries have trips with guides there most days. If you are not arriving by boat, go to the port booking office and see if you can join one?
