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.

Visited on a tour of Trondheim. 90k to get in. We had an English speaking guide who told us about the history and architecture. You need to allow a good hour to go around inside if you wish to see everything. Be sure to study the statues outside. Easy walking distance to Centre of City

The entrance fee is 90 NOK, would have been nice if there was a booklet or audio guide included. I hoped that there would be more information. The cathedral is already from the outside beautiful to look at with so many details and statues. The inside is quite gloomy but with amazing stained glass windows and high vault. There's so... More

This is a great spot, probably the greatest church in Scandinavia. Perfect spot for goths and a must on the Norway trip.

The cathedral itself is a wonder! Please be aware of opportunities for guided tours (fee based) on Saturdays/Sundays, free organ recitals and a number of other options like visiting the archbishop's palace museum including The King’s Crown and the other coronation objects that represent the royal regalia of Norway that are on display in the west wing of the Archbishop’s...

I'm in the big Sámi choir which sung there with Nidarosdomen's Domkor, February the 6th on the Sámi People National Day and the 100 years anniversary for the first big Sámi Political meeting. That took place in Trondheim Febr. 6th 1917. It was amazing to be there and sing there, even for the Norwegian King and the Prime minister etc... More

The place to visit when you are in Trondheim. The outside of the cathedral provides some amazing photography. Inside the cathedral photography is prohibited but there is so much to see that you will forget about this. Visit the inside during the day, and if you have a chance visit the outside at night on a clear night to get... More

Although i am not a fan of churches, this is a great spot. Walking distance from the pier and well located for strolling by the canal. You can visit it inside as well, but not as a tourist for taking pictures..

Spend an hour in front of the cathedral and just gaze upon all the detailed statues. They never cease to impress me ...

It is a nice Cathedral, but it would be good with more information during the visit. Pricy entrance fee for the Cathedral and bispegården so plan your visit. Seemed a bit disorganized inside during our visit, but it may have been related to Christmas preparation.
