Go for a wander around the colourful, cobbled pedestrian streets in the Bakklandet area. You can also rent a bike, the locals’ favourite transportation mode.
Historic Bakklandet is a popular meeting place that manages to be hip and charming at the same time.
Sip a homemade cup of cocoa or enjoy lunch with locally produced ingredients at one of the many cafés and restaurants ...
… then pop into some of the lovely boutiques and galleries.
There are plenty of them, both in Bakklandet and in the rest of the city.
In the last few years, Trondheim has established itself as Norway's leading cycling city. Bakklandet also has the world's first bicycle lift Trampe!
The lift transports 20,000-30,000 cyclists up the steep hill every year, and it can be used by up to five people at the same time.
Walk or cycle over the bridge Gamle Bybro towards the centre.
Just take your time, so you can admire the view of the 18th-century wooden wharfs that are lined up along the Nidelva river.
On the other side of the river you have the Nidarosdomen Cathedral, Trondheim’s Gothic queen.
Constructed over the tomb of St. Olav, it is Norway's largest church. It has been an important pilgrimage destination in Northern Europe for centuries, and it still is.
More than a thousand people embark on the pilgrimage to Nidarosdomen every year.
Pilgrim or tourist – the 5,000 or so sculptures that adorn the cathedral will make your jaw drop!
Allow plenty of time to take in the elaborate details. The craftsmen who constantly work on restoring the cathedral have left several surprises.
Look out for Bob Dylan’s face or a tribute to King Haakon VII, who was the king of Norway during World War II.
With a history that goes back more than 1,000 years, you will never run out of cool adventures.
Explore the ruins of St. Olav's Church in a basement in the city centre, for example. Or check out 72 sculptures that are tucked away in a dark room under a bank.
Venture just outside the centre for a visit to Kristiansten fortress, built in the 17th century.
Trondheim has established itself as a leader in innovation and is known as Norway's capital of knowledge.
This is partly thanks to the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), the largest university in the country.
If you fancy accommodation with something extra, the recently renovated five star hotel Britannia Hotel won’t disappoint.
The magnificent building has adorned the city since 1870 ...
... and is an attraction in its own right.
Britannia has something for everyone, from a world-class spa and a fitness centre to six restaurants and bars, one of which is the Michelin restaurant Speilsalen.
Trondheim is also known as the "Home of Nordic Flavors". The city has developed into a top destination for foodies and can show off three stars in the Michelin guide.
Creative and ambitious chefs are constantly pushing the boundaries using locally produced, high-quality ingredients from sea and land.
Go on a gastronomical pilgrimage to the most renowned restaurants and eateries. Or visit during the annual Trøndelag Food Festival and be part of an amazing celebration of the region's fantastic flavours.
Trondheim is also a wonderful place to quench your thirst.
Whether you prefer elegant bars with biodynamic wines, hip cocktail bars, microbreweries, or local coffee roasters, you will find it here.
The city’s 40,000 students make sure that there is always something fun going on. There’s a huge variety of festivals, concerts, and other cultural events to choose from.
And who knows, if you visit in the winter, you might just get to see the northern lights dance across the sky.
