Trondheim is surrounded by lovely forested hills, and the Nidelven River winds through the city. The charming old streets at Bakklandet bring you back to architectural traditions and the atmosphere of days gone by. It has been, and still is, a popular pilgrimage site, due to the famous Nidaros Cathedral which is incorporated in the official European Cultural Routes on the same terms as Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Trondheim is also an ecclesiastical centre, a regional capital, a centre for commerce and administration – and, last but not least, a city of education and research.
Choose between a rich variety of historical sights, museums and art galleries - and look forward to an unforgettable experience.
- The Nidaros Cathedral is the most northerly gothic cathedral in the world. Building began in 1070 over the grave of St. Olav, but the oldest parts are from the middle of the 12th century.
