Røros Church


«Bergstadens Ziir» - better known as Røros Church - was built during the copperwork's golden age «in God's honour and as an adornment to the town». The church, which was completed in 1784, does justice to its name with its majestic location high above the timber buildings. The Directorate for Cultural Heritage regards the church as one of the ten most profiled churches in Norway. It is one of the country's largest churches with seating for 1,600 people. The church has been newly opened after 2 years of extensive renovation and has now been restored to its former glory.
