The Bergen Cathedral is beautiful but I was expecting much more. The beauty of the cathedral is obviois both on the inside and outside but being the cathedral I was seeking to be absorbed into the scenerity and that was lacking. But that was me and it is still a must see.

People working here are amazing! Check out the columns and the cannonball stuck on the outer wall. Very peaceful spot on my Bergen travels!

I loved the church - it was beautiful inside and out. We went back in the evening for a fantastic concert of Grieg music. Definitely see if you can add that to your itinerary!

I happened to stop by the Domkirken the morning of St. Lucia Day and saw that they were having a concert that night. Not only did I get to see the inside of the building, but I got to hear it's amazing acoustics and see a wonderful performance.

Beautiful old church, many of Bergen's oldest churches are all within a short walk of one another, and have art & iconography not seen in other parts of Europe. Check opening hours.

The church is quite plain inside, but the stained glass is pretty. There is also a large pipe organ. There are old gravestones on the grounds, which are interesting. Worth popping in for five minutes.

Pleasant church in the centre of town - look out for the cannonball in the wall outside, courtesy of British privateers! Worth a visit if you're passing.

The organ is absolutely beautiful in this old church. Seems as though there have been a lot of funerals in Bergen. Yesterday the cathedral was closed for a funeral - but we got in today. We heard an organ practice and then were told that there was going to be another funeral and we would need to leave. Tip -... More
