The cathedral is big and spacious although a bit plain. It’s very beautiful though and I would definitely recommend it to people visiting Molde. It has a very central location.

A delightful and tasteful modern rebuild, as the original was a victim of WW 2. THE must see building in town. Do hope it is open when you are there. We loved it. Made us almost think of a mini-miniature Coventry Cathedral. Lovely.

Part of a tour bus excursion, we stopped to visit this quaint little church, it is more plain than most churches but the paintings and colourful windows make it a nice place to visit.

After alighting from the bus, we could see the towering bell tower, so we headed in that direction. Very impressive building when seen from the front and back. Went inside and saw the interior, modest setting.

Stopped by after visiting the rose garden. The architecture is very special although the inside was less impressive. Still a place worth visiting.

Our daughter got married here last March and we visited this September to see where it was. It's in a very beautiful setting and hopefully it will be open when you visit.

Molde cathedral is quite a new building compared with most churches, but it never the less is most impressive . Beautiful modern stained glass. Well worth a visit.
