«I love Trondheim»

-There are few places where history plays such an important role in the city's everyday life as it does here in Trondheim. We are living and breathing Trondheim's history, but we are also walking on top of it in the charming cobbled streets throughout the city. -Former mayor of Trondheim, Marvin Wiseth in the preface of the book “Trondheim forteller” (Stories of Trondheim).

The “Trondhjemmer”, someone who is from Trondheim, is proud of its city and will love to give you some advice on what to see in Trondheim. Here are some of the best suggestions:

Roar Hildonen

«Our fantastic green belt, Bymarka, is like a food basket right outside the city centre. It is where I find several ingredients for my own dinner and for my restaurant. The charming Bakklandet gives me peace of mind, either while enjoying a cup of coffee, or with a fishing rod in my hand. Further-more, Nidarosdomen Cathedral is one of my favourites, with its fantastic history and the thought of how many people’s fates and fortunes have been sealed there.»

Jan Erik Raanes

«Trondheim to me is the pastoral scenery of Lade and the Ladestien path with its proximity to the fjord, the city centre with Bakklandet’s unique charm, and Marinen park with its extensive lawns surrounded by the river, Nidarosdomen Cathedral and the Archbishop’s Palace

Marit Wangen

«My Trondheim favourites include a stroll through the city on a Saturday. Usually we will walk down Nordre Gate or over to the Solsiden area to meet friends for a coffee. Trondheim is a compact city with everything within walking distance of the city centre. But it is still big enough to offer a range of exciting shops, restaurants, and everything your heart desires. The city is full of life and energy, but you may still enjoy a calm and quiet atmosphere. On Sundays it is nice to take a walk down Bakklandet. Here, two year old Milla can try out one of the play parks' many slides, and we can stop for a coffee at one of the inviting cafés in the area. You will always meet someone you know at Bakklandet - and if it is too chilly, the cafés have blankets to snuggle up with.»

Ina Haaheim Stenvig

The perfect evening date in Trondheim takes you on a journey of good food and drink in a city where there is always something going on. Personally I prefer to stop by Pair-a-Dice, Brukbar or Bakgården Bar & Spiseri.»

Jo Gjedrem

«Trondheim has a range of lovely buildings, and the city has a historical air to it. But what I really love about the city is its people and its state of mind. As Norway’s third largest city, after the busy, somewhat anonymous Oslo and the aggressively festive Bergen, Trondheim has found its niche in being calm, safe and jovial. And I don’t mean that in a negative way. It is nice to arrive in Trond-heim and be able to let your shoulders down and relax. This is a city well suited for both work and play.»
