You will need no more than 20 minutes, unless you go to attend a mass. Build in the late 17th nice tapestry and paintings and beautiful music pieces.

Fairly ordinary as far as Cathedrals go. Alfresco’s on the ceiling. I’m sure Norwegians love it. Go if you happen to be there/ or maybe not.

Oslo is not famous for its churches but this one, the main, is definetely interesting. Situed in the main street it will be easy to be found. Spend some of your time here, one of the best sight in this city.

I wouldn’t say it’s spectacular but if only are already in the area then it’s enjoyable to just walk around the building. There’s a cathedral cafe if you want to stop by for snacks. I didn’t go inside so can’t comment much

The Oslo Cathedral is well worth a visit as it has a really stunning interior which is so different from what we are used to in England. A really great ceiling, being really peaceful inside.

I was in Oslo in April, the weather was nice, about 14-16 degrees C, you need something warm to sit outside if you want to enjoy your meal outside, that is very nice. It may rain also at that time.
