    Even viewing our local cathedral back at home, it is really just fascinating and just as exciting seeing other cathedrals across the world. Nidaros Cathedral was very beautiful and the surroundings was excellent. The location is great and not far from the city centre.

    Of course one of the places to go when you're in Trondheim is to take pictures here! The reflections of the building is absolutely beautiful, and what you see on all the souvenir seem to have just come true. Lovely place, and you couldn't miss it especially coming from the cruise port like us.

    We came across the Old Town Bridge by accident as it happened to be on our path back to our hotel from the Olav Cathedral. The views from the bridge up and down the river provide a glimpse of days gone by. Buildings in bright colors along the waters edge.

    For anyone with even a little bit of interest in historical musical instruments, this is a Must See! Our guide, Tromb (sp? He pronounced it “Troom”) was magnificent, both as a docent with excellently pronounced English and as a proficient keyboard artist. He played on the predecessor instruments leading to the piano (harpsichord, clavichord, harmonium etc) as well as the grand piano. The history of other instruments was fascinating as well. Thoroughly enjoyable, entertaining, and educational. Plus the gardens outside are a beautiful plus to the visit.

    One of the main attraction in Trondheim and just a walking distance from NTNU. Built in the 17th century with lots of old cannon outside. You will also see some WW2 cannons.

    I went on last minute, so I had only an hour to go around, I would have needed more, but it was still worth it. I really appreciated the 50's and the Black metal room since I'm a fan. Satyricon! 🤟 People who works here are really nice too. Tusen takk!

    We arrived during drizzle we were still able to navigate to all the building. Having visited the folk museum in Oslo a few years ago this was much smaller. But... the people at the visitor center and cafe were very informative and a pleasure. The Museum inside the visitor was very nice, almost missed it. Local bus from downtown was great.

    So close to the town, so easy to arrive. Trum no. 9. Getting off in Lian. Walking 15 Km through the reserve. Bus 11 back from Byasen mall. Since it was a rainy day we went through the wet grass and many temporal streams of water. In the summit of the ski lift we had arctic weather, but it all justified the 6 hours walk in almost perfect solitude. Highly recommended in any weather. Bring with you proper clothing and shoes. A navigation app is a must. 5 stars, no doubt.

    We travelled on the vintage tram as part of an excursion, which included a coach to take us to a view point where you could see the whole city. The tram from the 50’s was good fun, complete with period posters for atmosphere and our guide gave us a lot of information about the sights we passed.

    This place gives a great view to Trondheim. It is easily accessible from downtown Trondheim with bus no 22. The tower has a restaurant so good stop for lunch, too.

    Buy a combination ticket in the visitors shop for both the cathedral and the palace. The palace ticket will get you into a few museums in the complex that provide a history of the kings and bishops of Norway. There is also information about the military history of the country. I would strongly recommend you see the palace.

    Good path close to the city that follows the sea. Suitable for hiking, running and cycling.
    Rest areas in several places

    Beeing a Swede always makes it a bit embarrassing joining the English tour instead of the Norwegian. But this time it was the right choice. Our guide was a language genious that took questions and answered them in English, French, German, Italian and of course Swedish (even if he answered them in Norwegian).

    The tour took 45 minutes and was like a regular castle tour. We got to see 10 different rooms with lovely furnitures and the guide added some nice anekdotes and stories for each room.

    Spend four hours inside with pleasure. Several warm pools. One with waves, other with water massage. Slides, jumping boards. The restaurant is basically a snack bar with decent quality sausages and burgers.
