Description

"The Monks Island". This was Trondheim's execution ground in ancient times and the Benedictine monks built a monastery on the island very early in the 11th century. In 1658 it was converted into a prison and fort, later becoming a custom house.

Today this is a popular recreational area, with good bathing and restaurant.

The boats leaves every hour on the hour, but runs continuously in good weather. Return is 15 minutes past the hour every hour.

Trips can be arranged for groups between May and September.
