Description

Oslo Cathedral (previously Our Saviour's Church) was first consecrated in 1697. In 1950 it was restored back to its original baroque interior.

The pulpit, altar piece and organ front with acanthus carvings are all originals. The large ceiling murals were painted by Hugo Lous Mohr between 1936 and 1950, and the stained glass windows are by Emanuel Vigeland.

Oslo Cathedral is the main church for the Church of Norway Diocese of Oslo, as well as the parish church for downtown Oslo. The Norwegian Royal Family and the Norwegian Government use the cathedral for public events.

The church is open for pre-booked guided tours on weekdays.

Norwegian name: Oslo domkirke
