Interesting structure and is beautiful in the snow, you can see the stained glass through the windows out front, I didn't think it was worth paying to go inside. The views from the out front are great.

The Arctic Cathedral is unique and cool to see if you are interested in architecture. You can see inside through the windows, and the inside is not very impressive. Wouldn't be worth the entrance fee.

As with most Protestant cathedrals/ churches, the interior is quite plain. The highlight is the stained glass window at the East / Altar side by Victor Sparre. Please check up the internet for details on the window.

If you are religious this may appeal. The design of the building is interesting but when you get there you have to pay to go in. Taking a look through the windows the architecture itself is the interesting feature and this can be seen from...More

First of all, I don't know why people complaining about the 50 NOK fee. People would probably spend much more than that to come to Tromso or Norway and it costs almost cheaper than a cup of cappuccino. The fee is probably needed to maintain...More

We visited here whilst in town on a cruise ship in March. It is situated at the end of the Tromso Bridge and is an easy walk from the main city centre of Tromso. If your ship docks in town, it is perfect. If it...More
