more than a cathedral. ..a little church compared to the churches in Italy ... nothing to see inside. ..and above all 5 euros thrown away ... makes the outside look better!

I am sure there is a reason why the cathedral has only certain hours when is open, but that disappointed us. It would be nice if one could walk in, have a moment of silence and aknowledge the beauty we were entrusted on this Earth.

Best to go here on the way to Fjellheisen as it is on the same bus route. It is also possible to walk from the city centre, but it will take around 20+ minutes and the wind can be quite strong while crossing the bridge....More

We have decided to see the cathedral before leaving, as it was a quick road from our accommodation - we did not regret! If you get to see it at night it is even better!

Most impressive viewed from the outside and across the water. The stain glass window is striking but the rest of the Church is stark. I prefer the delightful wooden church in the city centre.

If it hadn’t been my 60th birthday, I might not have paid such a steep price (app. $50 for two tickets) for a concert that lasts just 30 minutes. But I wanted to end the day with something special, and this did turn out to...More

Taxi is available all the time. If not at the docks - go to nearest hotel and get them to call a taxi.
