Summer at Stiklestad
Summer at Stiklestad is a place where visitors can experience life on a medieval farm and try to take part in farm work. All of the staff look as if they were from the 11th century. This is a very family friendly place with plenty to do for all ages, starting from a visit to the amphitheatre to dressing up as a Viking.
Culture and architecture
St. Olav Festival
Very popular and well-attended among locals, St. Olav Festival is held in the last week of July and runs until early August. It’s a festival that features performances by world-famous artists and musicians from Norway’s own alternative scene. such as Johnny Cash’s daughter Rosanne Cash, Masaaki Suzuki and the BBC Singers performing together with local luminaries Trondheim Soloists.
Gamle Bybro – Old Town Bridge – is the most important sight in Trondheim, something otherwise appears only in fairy tales where a selfie is de rigueur. A walk on the river banks between two bridges is also obligatory for anyone visiting Trondheim and in addition, the old colourful riverside houses that are a firm photographers’ favourite.
Nidaros Cathedral is the second largest medieval cathedral in Scandinavia, construction began back in 1070. Even those who aren’t particularly into architecture will be left with an indelible, lifelong impression. Authentic Viking architecture is something so great and imposing that it simply must be seen.
When you buy a combo ticket, you can visit Nidaros Cathedral, the Archbishop’s Palace and the Royal Treasury for the same price.
Norway is famous for its skiers. But football also enjoys nationwide popularity and the strongest club in the country has historically been Trondheim Roseborg, a 24-time champion. The stadium with a capacity of over 21,000 is a perfect place to catch a local or European league game.
Food, drink and nightlife
The pleasures of the flavourful Norwegian cuisine are best enjoyed at Folk&Fes, which uses local ingredients in all dishes and which has been awarded a White Guide label. Vertshuset Tavern also makes a good place to eat, for seafood lovers, Havfruen, or the darling Café ni Muser in the Trondheim art museum, which is visited by many representatives of the local art and culture scene.
Trondheim’s biggest shopping centre City Syd offers activities for nearly the entire day. Here, 15 minutes by car from the city centre, you will find a good restaurant as well as clothing by Norwegian designers from upscale boutiques.
Three kilometres from the heart of the city is a large shopping centre called City Lade. Rent a bike or car, because there is plenty of parking for all. Local transport – bus no. 4 – will also whisk you there and back to the centre in comfortable fashion.
We recommend using public transport to get around the city – it’s easy and convenient. The city’s buses and trams are on a unified ticketing system. Just choose the most convenient solution.
If you want to discover Norway’s magically beautiful nature through the fjords and mountains outside the city, we recommend car hire, as it will get you to places where the unforgettable atmosphere can hardly be conveyed by even the most experienced photographer, to say nothing of being put into words.
Low-cost car hire lets you discover Norway’s magical places and amazing nature that are a bit out of the Trondheim city centre.
