Beautifully designed on the outside, and a little disappointing inside. The midnight concert was wonderful.

It is nice. It is scenic. Nothing negative to say about it. But without the context of a church with modern architecture next to a beautiful waterway across from a glittering island city linked by a gracefully arched cantilever bridge, it might not quite rank...More

The Artic Cathedral stands out among all the small houses nearby, close to the shore of the Tromso fjord. It is a modern church with a large white cross inside the tepee-like construction. As it is modern church the interior is austere, but the stained...More

Stopped to take a few photos of this beautiful, iconic church on our visit to Tromsø off a cruise ship. Just be careful if visiting on Sunday - the interior is closed to visitors on Sunday mornings for services, and is also sometimes closed on...More

It's beautiful and when you think cathedral you think quiet, solemn-not here, not when I went. Was so crowded and chaotic. They have midnight concerts and that is probably nice I was really regretting not having stopped by before to avoid the crowd.

Stands out from the distance and thats about it, expensive to enter and fairly plain inside. A lot of hype, not justified.

Original church building, especially seen from the outside. A pity they ask money to visit the inside while there is not much to see that differs from any other church

I went as part of a group from the Hurtigruten to a midnight concert. The building was much smaller than memory served, but was as good for acoustics as claimed. (There were only three performers, but they filled the building.) Beatific use of concrete, if...More

Beautiful architecture. In summer you should join the summer concert starting at 11pm. After the concert, you can see the sun going down and rising up again.

I believe the port for the larger cruise liners is a short distance away, but not far enough to be a problem. I think there is a small fee for The Arctic Cathedral and the Cable car is not that much further on from there... More
