The Basics

Oslo Cathedral is the main church for the Church of Norway Diocese of Oslo. Elements original to its construction include the pulpit, organ front, and altarpiece—a 1748 model ofThe Last Supper and the Crucifixion. Dating from the 1850s, the bazaar halls (Basarhallene) behind the cathedral periodically host markets and cafés. A variety of group and private tours of Oslo—including by bus, foot, and Segway—visit the cathedral as well as the city’s other top sights. Shore excursions generally also stop here. If traveling independently, book ahead for a guided tour of the cathedral.

I am so pleased my tour was not cancelled due to me being the only participant. I had just one full day to see as much as posting Oslo. My guide Natalie was fantastic! Highly recommended . She took me through so many different and versatile sections of the city. This tour would definitely please a variety of tastes and expectations. Natalie is very well versed in the history and future of this vibrant city. She is also extremely personable and set the tour to my wish list versus setting the tour by a preconceived checklist of her own. Good on you Natalie!
