Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Mock gothic cathedral in grey. Could have looked beautiful when first built but sadly the reconstruction has not done a good job on its exterior. Did not go inside as it costs a tenner and we had too little time. Lovely cafe and free clean toilets.

Nidaros cathedral is one of the most imposing religious buildings I have ever seen. It was the main place for religious services in the whole country. The cathedral was built in 997.

Even viewing our local cathedral back at home, it is really just fascinating and just as exciting seeing other cathedrals across the world. Nidaros Cathedral was very beautiful and the surroundings was excellent. The location is great and not far from the city centre.

A grey day in Trondheim and we were on an organised tour around the city. Our guide took us to the cathedral and explained about the building and said we had some free time and we could pay to go into the cathedral.

It was a small fee and well worth it. The interior is stunning. Perhaps our guide should have been more insistent about going inside.

Walked to Nidaros Cathedral. Beautiful church with dozens of sculptures on the front of kings and saints. Has three church bells, oldest from 1751 and the largest bell in Norway at 2400 kg from 1964. Cornerstone laid in 1248. Church burned three times.
Information available in Norwegian, German and English. Great time lapse video shows the various shapes of the cathedral from 11th century to 2001. Stained glass windows throughout. Two sets of organ pipes. Adult entry tickets 120 kr.

When we visited this sight it was already closed, as so many other tourist attractions, almost everything closes at 4pm. So we walked in the park around the cathedral.

It's worth it to pay 120 NOK to go see inside if you like cathedrals. It is big and purified style, nothing that is too much. There is a section in the basement too. The graveyard and the Archbishop's Palace are pretty nice to visit too.

Original construction took from 1070-1320, longer than the United States has been a country, The mammoth structure boasts meticulous stone work and awesome stained glass windows. It was renovated in the Middle Ages and again in current times. Each renovation takes years due to the tedious work that is required.
