Uranienborg church is a parish church in Oslo, Norway.
The church is situated in the neighborhood of Uranienborg, next to Uranienborg Park behind the Royal Palace.

Both the church and Uranienborg school just below were constructed in 1886. The church was built of brick and was the most expensive of all churches erected within Christiania (now Oslo) at this time. The church was designed by Balthazar Lange who was city architect in Christiania from 1898 to 1920. It was consecrated on 22 December 1886. The building is given a Gothic feel and was decorated with stained glass by the artist Emanuel Vigeland. The church was initially decorated with frescoes by Enevold Thømt, which have since been lost. In 1930 the interior received its present form by architect Arnstein Arneberg. The church has 1020 seats.

  • Big, Gothic cathedral standing on a hilltop and inviting people to go in when it is open of course 😉
  • 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.
