Construction seems to have been going on when we went by. The rain was blinding, pounding, unrelenting and (in all honesty) we just could not even be sure if the church was even open for visitations. However, all that being said, the all-wood Christian church...More

Due to construction in the area, the Domkirke was closed the first two days that we were in Tromso, but it was open for worship on Sunday morning. It is the only wooden cathedral in Norway, and it is a very pleasing worship space.

Only saw the outside but there is lots of history in the church in a town where half is modern and the other half old, mainly due to a fire in the town in 1996.

This is a large wooden church which in a way defines the center of town. There is a major restructuring of the street and square pavement outside the church which, when completed, will improve the ground around. Nothing much in term of design and interior.

as entrance was closed we could watch only outside fassade and park in front of church - outside impression quite ok and typical building and construction for scandic buildings of modern times
