  • It is one of the largest evangelical Lutheran temples in Oslo, built in the late 19th century. The building of the temple is made of red brick in the style of neo-Gothic designed by the architect Balthazar Lange - it has a high spire above the central entrance and windows in the form of elongated arches. The facades are decorated with stained glass by the artist Emanuel Vigeland. The church is large and accommodates up to 1,020 parishioners. Unfortunately it was not possible to get inside, but I read that the inner walls of the church are decorated with a red tree; benches, pulpit and altar are made of the same material. There is an organ in the main hall of the temple.

  • Live in the vicinity of the church, walk 400 meters past, did not expect that the church was not opened in Sunday, no special scenery around, if deliberately past tours, there is no need for ... ....... How the word count is not enough ah!

  • It's a very nice place if you want to have fun. The place is both for a single person, as a couple or larger groups. Children friendly also may I add. The location itself is epic, beautifully presented, nicely taken care off and welcoming. I advice to check for yourself.
  • Best place to purge the souls of your victims 4 stars
