Visit Trondheim


The university town of Trondheim has a long and interesting history, alongside its modern charms. Central Norway's biggest city is full of life, with decent eateries, bakeries and museums along the broad streets of Midtbyen, the city centre. There's excellent shopping to be had here too, in designer boutiques and four shopping centres located in and around its pedestrianised centre - which emanates from the spacious main square, Torvet.

Trondheim was founded by the Viking chief Olav Tryggvason in the 10th century and with its harbour and enviable position at the head of a fertile valley it emerged as an important power base - it was here that the early Norse parliament, the Ting, met. Bicycle tours and harbour sightseeing boat trips are good ways to learn about the history of the city. Trondheim's colossal copper-spired cathedral is a prominent landmark that features on most tours. Dedicated to St Olav, it's been the burial place for Norwegian royalty and setting for coronations.

Running through the centre of Trondheim is the River Nid, besides which are some of the nicest restaurants and cafes. The river gave the city its original name of Nidaros, meaning ‘mouth of the Nid', and the Gamle Bybro - old town bridge - spans it. Across the bridge is the Bakklandet district, with its cobbled streets, colourful timber houses and galleries.
