Akersbakken 26, Oslo, Norway, 0131
Gamle Aker Kirke is one of Oslo's oldest building, constructed on a countryside hill around the early first century, using limestone quarried from the nearby cemetery. The expansion of the city has caught up with the church, and now it lies only a ten-minute walk from the Royal Palace. The Baroque bishop's throne and baptismal font date from 1715. Today's austere stone walls were uncovered in the 1952 to 1955 restoration. Attending Mass here still takes your mind back to medieval times. During World War II, Queen Maud's sarcophagus was hidden from the Nazis inside this church.
