The vibrant city of Trondheim is home to some of Trøndelag’s most popular attractions, cosy shopping streets and a myriad of restaurants and bars offering local specialties.
With a population of 193,000, Trondheim is not a big city on a European scale. However, it is the third largest in Norway. The wide range of things to do may in part be attributed to the city’s students, who number more than 30,000. The students leave their mark on the city by arranging many events, as well as attending the city’s other cultural offerings.
Trondheim has a number of sights that each year are among the most visited in Trøndelag. The Nidarosdomen cathedral is an impressive sight. The cathedral is the national sanctuary of Norway, built over the grave of St. Olav. Work began in 1070, but the oldest parts still in existence date from the middle of the 12th century.
Popular museums with exciting exhibitions include the National Museum of Decorative Arts, the Trondheim Museum of Art and the Archbishop’s Palace Museum. A museum that stands in stark contrast to these is Rockheim, Norway’s national museum of popular music. There are several options for getting to Trondheim and around.
