Trondheim, Norway

Trondheim is an old city in central Norway. The city is dominated by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.

Trondheim is the oldest of Norway's major cities, and its old heritage can still be traced in and around the city center. The marvelous 

Nidaros Cathedral

, the second largest church of Northern Europe, towers over the city center, which is roughly the area inside the meandering Nidelva.
The city boasts a rich, cultural heritage, but is still a major center. Even if the size is modest, there's a lot going on in Trondheim. Music, arts, culture, alternative politics, nightlife, student life... all combine into making Trondheim one of the most exciting city centers of Northern Europe.


Comparable to Scotland, the climate is oceanic and Trondheim is warmed by the Gulf Stream in the winter. Therefore the winters are much milder than you would expect at 63° north — temperatures of over +10°C can be encountered well into October. There is snow in the winter, but the temperature is certainly more pleasant than, say, at the same latitude in Canada or even Finland. Don't expect Mediterranean temperatures in the summer, though. Being practically located at the Atlantic Ocean, strong winds are common; moreover, few days are free of rain, so it's a good idea to bring a jacket even in the summer.

Trondheim, Norway: Port Information

Usually, cruise ships dock at the modern passenger terminal located a 15-minute walk from the center of Trondheim. You can easily get to the city's attractions on foot.
However, if there's already the cruise ship docked in the port, you cruise liner may dock at Quay 68 located on the other side of the city. You can get to the city center by shuttle bus or taxi. 

Get around Trondheim, Norway

Trondheim has a well-developed bus network, covering nearly all of the city. There are frequent departures during the day, less frequent during evenings.
Tickets Can be bought from the driver (the most expensive option). You can buy prepaid tickets at some convenience stores (Narvesen, 7/Eleven and Deli de Luca) selected parking meters and dedicated ticket meters at the largest bus stops in the city center. These tickets are cheaper than buying with cash from the driver.

One tram line operates from St. Olavs gate near the center to Lian, up in the Bymarka forests. It operates on the same fare schedule, so day passes are valid. The tram is the northernmost tram service in the world.
The resort island of Munkholmen, ideal for swimming, sunbathing or a peek at the old monastery, can be reached by boat from Ravnkloa every hour in summer. Make sure you don't miss the last boat home in the evening! Cash only.
Local trains can also be used within the city boundaries (between stations Rotvoll and Lerkendal/Heimdal). Sadly, these are no longer part of the common public transport fare system, so day passes are not valid. Buy single tickets from the station clerks or the conductor on the train.
If you want to find anywhere in Trondheim. The maps have more detail than a certain popular map website, and are very useful if you've heard the name of a place, but don't know where it is.

What to see in Trondheim, Norway

Some museums only open in summer.
  • Stay close to the Nidelva if you want to see the real pearl of the city. The sunsets can be magnificent, especially in summer, and the city is so far north that the first hints of arctic blue sky are seen. Summer days seem to last forever, although, for real midnight sun, you have to travel further north. The river is nicely experienced in the park Marinen just behind the Cathedral.
  • Nidarosdomen is the biggest church of Northern Europe and the only major gothic cathedral in Norway and the pride of the city. Towering over the city center at its southern edge, the majestic cathedral is the defining feature of Trondheim. Nidarosdomen is also Norway's national cathedral. It was erected over what was believed to be St.Olav's grave and it became a major pilgrimage site in Northern Europe. Next door is the Archbishop's Palace, which was partly burnt down in the '80s, and has been heavily restored. It houses an archeological museum, which includes an excavated Mint workshop for the minting of coins.
  • Wooden mansions in and around the city center.


    , the King's local residence, is the biggest together with the Singsaker summer hotel, but the small, wooden houses in parts of the city like Bakklandet, Hospitalsløkkan Ila and Ilsvikøra are even more picturesque.
  • The ancient fortress island


    , accessible by boat.
  • Wooden harbor buildings along Kjøpmannsgata, Fjordgata, and Sandgata. The best view is from the Old Town Bridge across Nidelva river, leading from close to the Cathedral to Bakklandet.
  • TV-tower with a rotating top restaurant (bus 20,60 to Tyholttårnet/Otto Nielsens veg)
  • Museum of Musical instruments at Ringve (bus 3,4 to Ringve museum). Also has the botanical gardens of Trondheim.
  • The small community of squatters in the area of Reina (dubbed by themselves Svartla'mon), now an ecological experiment-part of the city. A different neighborhood to walk around in, with very few shops, cafes and lots of graffiti.
  • DORA 1, the German submarine base for the 13th flotilla during the German occupation of Norway 1940 - 1945. Today the bunker is housing many archives, among them the city archives, university, and state archives.
  • Trøndelag folkemuseum at Sverresborg, with lots of old houses depicting lifestyle in the old days. In a very beautiful park area overlooking the city, and truly worth a visit! Activities for children on Sundays. Eat at the nice inhouse-cafe, or at the next-door "Tavern" dating from the 18th century. (Bus 8 to Trøndelag Folkemuseum)
  • Vitensentret (Trondheim Science Museum), Kongens gate 1, (+47) 73 59 61 23, 10:00-16:00 (winter), 10:00-17:00 (summer). A center for popularizing science, has lots of exhibits many of the interactive. Also has a gift store. Opens 1 hour later on Saturday/Sunday.   
  • Rustkammeret (Armory), Erkebispegården (Next to the Nidaros cathedral), +47 73 99 52 80, 10:00-16:00. The army museum will interest any military history enthusiasts. It holds a collection of weapons and uniforms dating back from the middle ages to modern day, and a permanent exhibition about the German occupation of Norway. Free admittance. 

What to do in Trondheim, Norway

  • Every year at the end of July and the beginning of August, you can visit the St. Olav Festival. The festival is a celebration of Olav Haraldsson, who attempted to Christianise Norway. The festival's programme consists of both religious contributions, like masses for pilgrimages in the Nidaros cathedral and cultural festivities like concerts, Middle-Age-plays, lectures, exhibitions, and many other activities.
  • Have a swim in the modern Pirbadet swimming pool, a magnificent water palace just by the sea, but definitely warmer! (Bus 46 or 52 to Pirterminalen, end station).
  • 2-hour tour down the river with a kayak from Trondheimkajakk and discover spectacular views of Trondheim hidden from the usual hiker.
  • Have an even cooler swim in the sjøbadet, a tiny little, but very cozy beach that consists of not much more than a wooden diving tower. It gains its uniqueness through its location, right to the left behind the central train station, in the area of harbor and industries. Don't worry, it's the cleanest water in the world!
  • If the weather is nice and the fjord is warm, the best swimming spots are found east of the city. The Lade area contains a footpath along the fjord, which passes many of the best swimming spots. (Bus 3 to Strandveikaia, then walk along the industrially-looking road to the left... and you'll find beauty soon!) Also, the Rotvoll/Ranheim-area further out is brilliant for sunbathing and swimming. (Bus 6 to Rotvoll or longer, or local train to Rotvoll station)
  • Have a walk in the Kristiansten Fortress - areakristiansen Fortress, overlooking the city. (If you can't be bothered with the hills, get bus 63 to Ankersgata, or rent a bike and use the bike lift!)
  • Take the local train to Hell Station and get a photo of yourself. If you can't be bothered going there, you can still buy a one-way ticket to Hell from Central Station... for that special someone.
  • Go skiing at Vassfjellet just outside Trondheim, in the season there's a bus service from Munkegata and a Ski Shop with ski and snowboard rental service.
  • Cross-country skiing is popular November-April with hundreds of km tracks in Bymarka and Estenstadmarka. You can rent skis at Skistua in Bymarka, bus 10.
  • Minimalen Short Film Fest. In March there is the option of watching the best of Norwegian and Nordic short films, as well as the best of the international film scene.

What to eat and drink in Trondheim, Norway


Trondheim has food spots to suit every taste, though remember that food prices are very high.
  • Studentersamfundet, Elgeseter gate 1. In the weird, wild, round, red house that houses the Interrail center in summer and the student society otherwise. The café Edgar serves some decent grub for not too much money (The chocolate cake is big and cheap). The entrance is at the glass entrance in the right of the big entrance. Go through the back door and to the left. Lyche (entrance from the south) serves really good food (soups, sandwiches, dinner, dessert) for reasonable prices. Check on their websites if they are actually open. All southbound buses stop at Studentersamfundet.
  • Student canteens. The size of the university means there are 21 student canteens around, serving up pretty bad food at some of the prices available.  
  • Hot Dog. Any kiosk will offer pølse in a bun and/or lompe (a soft tortilla-like patty) with condiments, and it may appear to be a cheap meal, though making a habit of eating pølse at all times is strongly discouraged.
  • 1001 Natt, Olav Tryggvasons gate. In the main thoroughfare through the center, 1001 Natt is one of many kebab-places in the center of the town. They are mostly pretty similar with regards to quality and price. 
  • Sesam, Studentersamfundet. Just by the main entrance, Sesam makes the city's most hyped and beloved burgers.
  • Tavern, Trøndelag Folkemuseum. Well worth it, for a taste of real Norwegian peasant cuisine. Be prepared to roll down the hills towards the city afterward, this is filling food! (Bus 8 to Trøndelag Folkemuseum)
  • Ramp, Strandveien, Svartlamon. This totally laid-back, semi-organic offering in the squat area of Svartlamon is a good place to while away the hours while watching totally exotic people doing their stuff. Great food at great prices. The letdown is the view of a train goods terminal, a German-built submarine bunker complex and that it is cool to the point of pretension; bring your tats and dreads. Any eastbound bus will take you to Strandveien stop.
  • EGON Tårnet, Otto Nielsens vei 4, Tyholt. The rotating restaurant at the top of Radio Tower in Tyholt offers a pizza buffet. (The other menu has HIGH prices). It is every Sunday and Monday from 11 AM to 11 PM. All other days it is from 11 AM to 6 PM. Tap water is for free, other beverages. (Bus 20 or 60 to Tyholttårnet/Otto Nielsens veg) There are also other EGON outlets around town, the most central being in Søndre gate, Prisens gate and at the Solsiden mall.
  • Credo Bar, Credoveita just behind Byhaven shopping center. This is one of the best restaurants in Trondheim, with prices to match. Nice, then, that they have a bar on the 1st floor serving the daily special (choice between fish and meat). It's ALWAYS delicious. Enter through the "hidden" door to the left of the restaurant, and walk up the stairs.
  • Bakklandet Skydsstation, Øvre Bakklandet. The place to find old Norwegian standards, such as kjøttkaker (meat cakes) and baccalao (dried, salted cod in a tomato sauce), in what must be the city's most charming and least right-angled house.
  • Cafe Ni Muser, Prinsens gate. Nice, artsy café with good food and a big outdoor section. A bit too close to the traffic-ridden Prinsens gate, however.
  • Kaktus, Nedre Bakklandet 6. Located in a small, but wonderful Trondheim street serving a nice range of very tasty food. Includes some Mexican and plenty of steaks.
  • Emilies, Erling Skakkes gate close to the Theatre. A homely gourmet restaurant with a slant towards French cuisine, Emilies is one of the top offerings in town.
  • Credo, Credoveita behind Byhaven shopping center. A top offering with a stellar wine list, this restaurant manages to be both informal, creative and top-end. Expensive, but a memory for life.


Beware of the stringent regulations governing the sale of alcohol! You can only get drinks of strength 4,7% or less from regular shops. So, only beer. Also, they stop selling beer at 8 PM sharp on weekdays, 6 PM sharp on Saturdays and they don't sell it at all on Sundays... a legacy from Christian Democracy. Beware of the alcohol-free beer too, there's lots of it, and many people drink it if they are driving... if you see beer that seems cheap(er) than the rest, check the strength!!
If you want wine or spirits, you'll need to find a Vinmonopolet, the state-run liquor stores. There are only a few in Trondheim, and they close early, 5 or 6 PM during the week and 3 PM on Saturdays. Sunday? Forget it. The most central one can be found in "Søndre gate", as well as in Byhaven mall, Solsiden mall, Valentinlyst mall, City Lade mall, and CitySyd mall.
The cafe scene in Trondheim is the best developed in Norway, with tons of fine coffee-and-cake spots around.

Mainly alcohol
  • Studentersamfundet, Elgeseter gate 1. A big, red, round temple to partying. Major concerts coincide with political meetings, discussions, wine tasting, disco, football matches and... you name it. You are certain to get lost in the mazes of this wonderful house. Fairly empty in summer and on weekdays, but on term time weekends, it's good.  The place is run by approx 1300 student volunteers who do everything from serving drinks, rigging concerts, sing in Samfundets choir, play in Samfundets symphony orchestra and hold political debates. Befriend anyone who works there, and try to gain access to their private quarters. Most volunteers are enthusiastic people that often are easy to befriend if you e.g. is a foreigner showing interest. The private quarters are secluded areas where the volunteers hang out after "work", and is an even more elaborate maze with some 20 pubs that stays open all night (and day... and night again...). Closed during summer (May-Aug).
  • Bar Circus, Olav Tryggvasons gate 27. Small, quite popular pub/venue and almost always very full - but that's not just because of the music or location, but because of the beer price which is cheap in Norwegian terms.
  • Kieglekroa Pub, Kongens gate 30. Pretty nice place to start your evening. Half-welcoming prices and good music. Try the "kjeglespill" in the basement - amusing, addictive and it's for free!
  • Den Gode Nabo, Bakklandet. Just across the Old Town bridge and down a scary-looking staircase, this is a brown fisherman's pub in an old warehouse. As atmospheric as it gets, they have Trondheim's most lovely outdoor seating in summer. The place is divided between the "grown ups section" by the entrance, and the "student section" further in. Popular amongst students and all others and not too expensive if you prefer regular brands. Furthermore, they have an exceptional range of beer and friendly and knowledgeable staff who are always happy to suggest new things to try.
  • DownTown, Near the crossing of Nordre gate and Fjordgata, it is widely known among students due to its piano bar. Cheap beer during the week and a lot of international students, especially on Thursday.
  • Crash, Just besides DownTown in Nordre gate, being one of the nightclubs in the sweet spot of Trondheim's nightlife it is often crowded in the weekends. Popular club for young people and students.
  • Gossip, Nordre gate, across the street of DownTown and Crash. This is another nightclub which together with DownTown and Crash is the main nightclub visited by students and young people (early twenties). On special occasions, Halloween for instance, Gossip will be the club most likely to host theme parties.
  • Blæst, Solsiden. In the new Solsiden complex at Nedre Elvehavn, Blæst is the best and most affordable offering. Discos and major concerts are held. Good outdoor seating along the whole front, but Blæst has the cheapest beer of the 6-7 pubs there.
  • Cafe 3b, Brattørgata. 3b is an institution in Trondheim. Leading on in the "big beer war" of the -90's, it was dirt cheap for years. Now it's more expensive, but it's still an enjoyable, black hole catering for rock and indie kids of every denomination imaginable. Hip-hop kids have their own private dungeon down the corridor behind the bar in the basement.
  • Credo, Credoveita behind Byhaven shopping center. Above the Credo restaurant is the 3b for grown-ups. Rock and indie for people who know their musical history, and the occasional live gig of guaranteed quality music. Entrance in the dark alley around the corner from the restaurant. Hard to spot unless the smokers are taking fresh air.
  • Fru Lundgreens, Olavskvartalet. In the basement of the concert hall, Fru Lundgreens looks like the inside of a lung but has good, cheap beer and a brilliant jukebox. Crowd is rock. Pooltable in the back. Prices vary on time, but always good value. The food of the day is good if you need something with your beer.
  • Carl Johan, Nordre gate. The northernmost end of Nordre gate is the hub of Trondheims nightlife, with mainstream discos, sausage kiosks and lots of drunk well-dressed people. Carl Johan is a straightforward pub with more relaxed ambiance than most offerings in the area.
  • Kjemikjellern, (Often pronounced Sjemisjeller'n by drunk students visiting from southeastern Norway), A great place for getting drunk in the weekends, very cheap beer and booze. Try befriending some local students and you might get to taste some lovely karsk.
  • Kvilhaugen gård, Tyholt (bus 60 to Kvilhaugen). If you venture out of the center to get your beer, make it here. Wonderful outdoor seating with views of most of Trondheim. Inside, it's an old farmhouse with plenty of atmosphere.
  • Bakklandet Skydsstation, Øvre Bakklandet. Doubles as a cozy cafe-cum-pub at night.
  • Cafe Ni Muser, Prinsens gate. Their outdoor section is packed with artsy types in summer. A lovely spot to get imbibed, just by the Cathedral.
  • Mormors Stue, Although being a café, it's most known as becoming the cheapest place to buy beer, which at the same time provides a nostalgic atmosphere. The downside is that you have to come early to be sure to get a seat.
  • Familien, Dronningens gate 11. Plays all kinds of music and caters to all kinds of people. A nice place if you want to dance, discuss or just drink with the other people. Cheap beer before 11 PM.
  • Trondhjem Mikrobryggeriet, Prinsensgt. 39. A brewery pub offering a range of beer brewed in-house (about six kinds plus a seasonal special). Prices for a 0.5L about 50% higher than elsewhere, but the only place in town to offer an IPA and a bitter from tap - along with the other four. Substantial food is served, too.
Mainly coffee
  • Mormors Stue. In the center of town, this cafe has a cake-buffet on Sundays. Carrot cake, cheesecake, apple cake, chocolate cake... all are totally edible. The free coffee's not up to Dromedar standards by far, but do go in a group and hang out for an hour or two. It's a good way to spend a hungover Sunday afternoon. Opens at 1 PM on Sundays, be sure to arrive on time to ensure you have a place to sit.
  • Choco Boco, Solsiden. A good coffee-bar with Italian-style coffee and exotic specials like Snickers coffee. Lovely cakes as well. Decent, free wifi access.
  • Dromedar Kaffebar, Nedre Bakklandet and Nordre gate. The best coffee in Norway (save Tim Wendelboes in Oslo), ultra-top-quality coffee comes with the typical laid-back Trondheim atmosphere thrown in for free, especially at their Bakklandet outlet. Plain awesome. Has wifi access.
  • UFFA, Innherredsveien 69c. The UFFA-Hus (Ungdom for fri aktivitet) is a autonomous youth-center in Trondheim with a lively history of 25 years. You'll find concerts of regional, Norwegian and international Punk, Hardcore and Metal-bands for decent prices. During the week they serve cheap vegetarian food.

Shopping in Trondheim, Norway

Shopping Streets
  • Nordre gate. The central shopping street in Trondheim, with international stores as well as local shops. Clothes, food, jewelry, watches, electronics, and much more can be found in this pedestrian-only street.
  • Thomas Angells Gate. Crossing Nordre gate at approximately half-way, this is a slightly smaller street with record shops and different other stores.
  • Fjordgata. Following the canal in the north of the city centre, you have this lengthy street filled mainly with specialty stores as well as a decent selection of restaurants.
  • Trondheim Torg, Kongens g 11. Smack in the middle of the city, this mall should be able to suit most of your needs. This mall especially has many diners/cafés. In 2005 it was extended with about 20 new stores and cafés. No frill, nothing fancy, just a centrally located shopping mall with good prices.
  • Mercur Shopping Center, Kongens gate 8. Also very central, this is a smaller and slightly less crowded shopping center than Torg; a good alternative.
  • Byhaven, Olav Tryggvasons g 28. Slightly posh shopping mall with a slight majority of expensive stores. Granted, there were many more posh stores when it opened some years ago now, but the posh environment seems to remain.
  • Solsiden, Beddingen 10, Nedre Elvehavn. Solsiden translates directly to "The Sunny Side". It was realized and hurriedly transformed from an abandoned ship-building site into the hippest shopping mall Trondheim has to offer. Very stylish and well thought out in beautiful surroundings flanked by penthouse apartments as far as you can see. It has a long stretch of restaurants/bars located by the old area where ships were launched back in the good ol' days. Perhaps the most enjoyable of the malls in Trondheim(?). Walk across the pedestrian bridge from close to the train station, or get any eastbound bus from the center.
  • City Syd, Østre Rosten 28 -30, 7075 Tiller. The largest shopping mall in central Norway, with 38000 square meters of shops, restaurants and whatever else you can think of. Slightly off the beaten tourist track but it can be reached by bus/taxi. The buses 46 and 47 connects City Syd with downtown and has frequent departures, the ride is about 15 minutes. In addition, there are 2 other shopping malls in close proximity (200 and 300 meters) to City Syd (easily spotted from the City Syd parking Lots), "StorM Sentret" and the larger "TillerTorget".
  • City Lade, Haakon VIIs gate 9. A new-ish, large mall at Lade, some 3kms from the center. Bus 4 takes you there.

Safety in Trondheim, Norway

Generally considered to be the sort of city where little old ladies can walk safely in dark alleys. It is also not terribly uncommon that regular people will go to great strides to give you back your wallet if you drop it, with cash and credit cards intact.

The only "danger" you might encounter are the occasional youths stumbling around in large groups on Friday/Saturdays. The same goes for Trondheim as anywhere else; leave drunk people alone and it's a good chance they'll leave you alone as well.

There are some beggars and rough people. Norway has an extensive social welfare system, and everyone is guaranteed a place to live and a minimum hand out from the government. Beggars are therefore usually people whose economical difficulties are related to excessive use of drugs or alcohol. In the summer, you might also encounter foreigners who have traveled to Norway on the purpose of begging for money. Begging is not illegal in Norway.

Language spoken in Trondheim, Norway

Norwegian is the main official language. English is widely spoken.
