Oslo Cathedral is a church for the Norwegian nation and for the city of Oslo. The church is situated in the city centre and is the seat of the Bishop of Oslo.

Oslo Cathedral has been the setting for several royal weddings since Norway gained independence in 1905. The cathedral is the church for the parliament and the royal family, but first and foremost, it is an open church for everyone who seeks it.

The life of the cathedral is both busy and quiet. Every day a priest or a deacon leads a worship service in the cathedral. The organists regularly give recitals in the church, and you might also hear one of the cathedral’s choirs rehearsing. We strive to keep the cathedral a welcoming place for visitors from near and far. We offer you a place where you can come as you are, and let your thoughts be carried and lifted up in prayer, either in silence or through music.

Blaise Pascal once wrote: “All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone.” A church is not like any other building. People have visited Oslo Cathedral since 1697, in joy and sorrow. People have come to the cathedral to seek the depths of their soul, and the high and holy. While you may not be entirely alone in the church, you are invited to sit down in a quiet place at the heart of Oslo.

As you come inside, you will perhaps notice how the light gives life to the stained glass windows. As the stained glass is animated through the light, it is our hope that the art in the church can bring light, solace, inspiration, and reflect God’s glory. We hope that you may find peace and renewed strength for your life through a visit to the cathedral.

The church is open every day, and every Friday night. You are welcome to participate in worship and prayer, light a candle, marvel at the ceiling, attend a concert, or just sit still in silence.
