Reviewed 2 weeks ago

It is a really nice building from outside, looks really nice as it is in the hills. we did not go inside as it was a little expenseive for such a small building. we did take a look inside, its like a regular church /cathedral. Must have been beautiful from inside as well.

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 the amazing building and ground.

Second of all, the church is fantastic from inside simply because of the stained glass and organ. Aside from the shape of the building which is amazing from outside, those two are basically the main feature of the church. The stained glass is so beautiful I could stare at it for hours. The glass window offers very nice view of the town. You can also see the cathedral from the harbour with mountain as the backdrop. It's simply amazing building and it's a must visit.

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 docks out of town, you will have to get yourself into the main city centre.

Well worth a visit. A very modern and interesting church. Entry is 50 NOK per person, which like anywhere else in Norway, is a little expensive. And if you visit in the cold weather, it is a welcome relief from the cold when you go inside.

We visited as part of a trip from our cruise ship. A very modern style triangular church with beautiful stained glass windows. The architecture symbolises the packed ice. The acoustics are said to be very good for the recitals held there.
