The Pilgrims' Route to Trondheim

The old Pilgrims' Route between Oslo and Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim was reopened the summer of 1997.

The sainted King Olav Haraldsson was buried in Trondheim in 1030. Nidaros Cathedral was erected over his grave, and for four centuries this city was a pilgrimage site for pilgrims seeking consolation, help and healing.

The old Pilgrims' Route between Oslo and Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim was reopened the summer of 1997. Since then many pilgrims have wandered to this ancient pilgrimage site.
