Go for a stroll along Trondheim’s cobbled streets aligned with niche shops, explore famous attractions such as the Nidaros Cathedral and Archbishop’s Palace, and tuck into locally produced goodies at the city’s many restaurants.

There are many highlights in Trondheim, Norway's third-largest city. The Nidaros Cathedral in the centre is an impressive sight. The cathedral’s history also makes it a hugely popular pilgrimage destination in Europe.

Some of the city’s most popular museums include Trondheim Art Museum, National Museum of Decorative Arts and Design (Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum) and the Archbishop’s Palace (Erkebispegården). A museum with another kind of artistic expression is Rockheim, Norway’s national museum for popular music.

With some 40,000 students in Trondheim, there is always something fun going on. Enjoy live music or look for bargains in the many niche shops in the city’s charming neighbourhoods.

Just outside the city centre, you’ll find Bymarka, a vast outdoor area ideal for long walks any time of year, and for skiing in the winter.

Check out these insider tips for a long weekend in Trondheim!

Trondheim invests heavily in locally produced food and drink, so you have every opportunity to taste new flavours you won’t find anywhere else.
