    The Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim (old name of the city: Nidaros) is one of the most important churches in Norway, it is considered a national shrine. The Norwegian Basic Law of 1814 stipulated that the Norwegian ruler should be crowned in Trondheim. For the brave pilgrims, it marks the destination of their pilgrimage. In the Nidaros Pilgrim Center (pilegrimsgarden.pilegrimsleden.no/de) successful pilgrims can receive their certificate and meet the pilgrim priest. There is also a café where you can relax.

    The cathedral is Scandinavia's most important medieval religious building and is still the spiritual center of Norway today. All coronation ceremonies took place there until 1906. The church was built over the tomb of St. Olav between 1066 and 1093.

    Nidaros Cathedral is the world's northernmost Gothic cathedral. It was built on the tomb of St. Olav, the Viking king who introduced Christianity to Norway. Construction of the cathedral began in 1070. Around the year 1300 it was finished in its full glory. You can also climb the tower in summer. The tower staircase has 172 steps, but the climb is worth it! Above you can enjoy the great view of the city.

    The Romanesque (the oldest sections) and Gothic cathedral made of gray soapstone (12th century) is the center of a pilgrimage dedicated to St. Olaf. Moreover, it is the tomb of the Norwegian kings and accordingly national sanctuary. The large portal is adorned by a magnificent rose window, the western facade is animated by rows of statues with saints and kings. In the interior, the prevalence of the vertical lines enhances the impression of height. .Source: viamichelin.de

    Nidaros Cathedral is a must-see when visiting Trondheim. We were particularly impressed by the effort made with the figures in the front of the cathedral. In the back yard you can see how the figures have to be constantly renewed because the stone is decaying.
