Overview

The beautiful wooden Holmenkollen Chapel is beautifully situated next to the Holmenkollen ski arena. The chapel was inaugurated in 1913. In 1992, it was set fire to and burned to the ground. The re-building of the chapel was commenced in 1995, and the new chapel was inaugurated in March 1996 by the bishop of Oslo. Service every Sunday and on Christian holidays.

Such a beautiful chapel with carvings inspired from the Viking culture. Nicely rebuilt in 1996 after it was burned down by black metal legends in 1992. If you are into black metal music, this is a must see!

We attended a wedding at the church and it was stunning from first impression. You see the church atop the hill as you drive up the entrance. Inside the high ceilings and natural light make the room look heavenly.

Not mentioned yet so i'll do it. This chapel is a rebuild of the original which was famously burned down by black metal musicians in a spate of arson attacks in the 90s. Being a fan of heavy metal and Scandinavian black metal in particular...More

Sigh! It's always problematic to be a reviewer at the extreme and, as of today, my review is the lowest this place has gotten. I truly hope nobody goes for a Poor since this is a pretty little chapel, and I have to give credit...More

Placed on a small hill just next to the large jumping tower it just blends in with the nature. Heading inside you probably get the feeling of stepping into a big cabin, something I found to be very refreshing actually. The interior provided a calm...More
