Stroll around in the colourful, cobbled pedestrian streets in the historic Bakklandet area, – the popular meeting place that manages to be both hip and charming at the same time...

...or rent a bike – the locals’ favourite transportation mode!

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, which there are plenty of, both here 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.

Continue cycling or walk over the bridge Gamle Bybro towards the center.

But just take your time, don't miss...

...the view of the 18th-century wooden wharves that are lined up along the Nidelva river.

If you're looking for unique city activities, we also recommend a kayak trip on the Nidelva river, a visit to the museum The Archbishop's Palace, or take the boat to the bathing and picnic paradise Munkholmen just outside the city.

When you get to the other side of the river, the Nidarosdomen Cathedral, Trondheim’s Gothic queen, is waiting for you.

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.
