Overview

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.

The destination for the Pilgrims of Norway. There are tours of the church offered as part of the price of admission and they are reasonably well presented. Our guide clearly had much more information and knowledge of the church and the society than he could...More

This is a phenomenal cathedral!! This must have dominated the whole area when it was built - a demonstration of power! A ship from outer space 😀 The location down to the river is nice. I am glad I had the opportunity to see this.

It depends on the season. The "pilgrims" show up in the summer, that I am sure about and when they do there are in fact daily, evening organ recittals for them and you can sit with the pilgrims and listens along.

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?
