Ideal for congresses and conferences

Easily accessible from Europe, Trondheim is a city of education and research. 

Meet in the middle of Norway

The lively, historic university town has great facilities for congresses and conferences. It has a rich selection of hotels, meeting and exhibition centres and is host to a large number of national and international conferences affiliated with the city's thriving technology sector.

Situated in the middle of the country, it has good domestic and international connections. Trondheim Airport Værnes is located only a 30-minute drive from the city centre and there are direct flights from many European cities.


As a well-established conference city, there are many tailor-made meetings incentives to choose from, many of which take advantage of the beautiful surroundings and introduce you and your team to typical Norwegian traditions.

Vikings, pilgrims and computers

Trondheim was Norway's first capital, founded by Viking King Olav Tryggvason in 997. Today, it is the third largest city in the country and still the city where new kings receive their ceremonial blessings. It has been, and still is, a popular pilgrimage site. It is a regional capital and last but not least, a city of education and research. Both Microsoft and Yahoo have development departments located in Trondheim.

Mild climate

Situated in the county of Sør-Trøndelag, Trondheim is pretty far north. In fact it is only 500 kilometres from the Arctic Circle, but the warm Gulf Stream blesses Trondheim with a fairly mild climate.
