OSLO CATHEDRAL (Oslo Domkirke)

Oslo's 17th-century cathedral at Stortorvet was restored in 1950, when Hugo Louis Mohr completed its modern tempera ceiling decorations. The cathedral contains works by 20th-century Norwegian artists, including bronze doors by Dagfin Werenskiold.

Try to view the pulpit and altar, which date from the cathedral's earliest days. There are stained glass windows by Emanuel Vigeland (not to be confused with the sculptor, Gustav) in the choir and Borgar Hauglid in the transepts. The organ is five stories tall. A bilingual service in English is conducted on Wednesday at noon, and an organ recital is presented on summer Saturdays at noon.
