We took Koningsdam cruise on July 17 to Norway. One of our port was Trondheim. We were told town is small and everything is near by. It may be true if you just want a glance of the town. Some of us were not fit to walk the small distant. Fortunately for us, we took a taxi van of 8.... More

Anyone visiting Trondheim should take the time to visit the Church as it represents a great part of the history of the Norwegian people with particular reference to St. Olav. I found the visit well worth spending time there talking to the local guides who all spoke excellent English.

To pay AUD15 to visit a cathedral seems a little steep and when you get inside to find photography is banned just grates. We just happened to arrive inside as an English-speaking tour was about to start. The commentary was very basic but useful.

Not finished yet so no points. It looks as though it will be great when finished. Most of the reviews first this cathedral are in fact for the Nidaros Cathedral across the road. The old church that once stood here looked like a swimming pool from the outside.

I went with a friend years ago! (so the date of this review is wrong). He was from the region and told me of the legend of St. Olav. The church took my breath away because of its age and history. While we were there, someone was practicing the organ, which just added to the mythos. If you like history,... More

The staff were extremely accomodating, there are 3 attractions, the church, Crown Jewels, and the bishops residence, so we asked could the ticket be used over 2 days, and the cashier endorsed it for 2 days. So much to see. The bishops house exhibits the basements and floor plans discovered during excavations. The tiles on the floor of the old... More

Well. The church is no longer there. They destroyed it and are building a new one. That is wise because it so was cold that it was impossible to attend any event or mass.

Yes, really. There's a hole in the ground and a construction fence around what we suppose used to be this church. Nothing to see.

The church is being rebuilt and masses are done in a provisional basement. Masses in other languages are offered in selected dates during the month.

The only Cathedral in Norway is named after the saint Olav, the norwegian viking king. They have got a new consert-organ installed recently and it is said to be bye the best in Europe. Every saturday 1.30 p.m. you can attend an organ consertino that lasts for 25 minutes.
