Trondheim is beautifully situated by the Trondheimsfjord. With the river Nid meandering through the city centre, it is surrounded by water on all sides. In addition, the characteristic low and colourful wooden architecture add to the unique atmosphere.
Enjoy a guided tour through the historic capital of Norway. The history of the city has played an important role in the development of the country from the Viking age and medieval times, which many of the popular attractions bear witness to. The original name of Trondheim was Nidaros. The Norwegian Viking king Olav Tryggvason established the city in 997. You will see Trondheim’s streets, boroughs and highlights, including a short stop at Utsikten (The View) to admire the city from a high elevation.
Discover the Nidaros Cathedral, Norway’s national shrine
The Nidaros Cathedral towers over the town, and is built over the burial place of St. Olav, the patron saint of Norway. The building of Norway’s national sanctuary began in 1070. Nidaros Cathedral displays beautiful stained glass from the 19th and the 20th centuries, and the statues and ornaments of the west front is a great attraction in itself.
