Trondheim – youthful and historical with an international flavour
A large city by Norwegian standards, Trondheim has still managed to preserve the charm and intimacy of a small town. Trondheim is known as one of the typical wooden cities of Europe, and the city centre has many special wooden buildings, some built as far back as the 1700s.
Bakklandet is Trondheim’s old quarter, and lies on the eastern side of the Nidelva. It is most easily reached by crossing Gamle Bybru from the town centre. The old wooden buildings, originally workers' houses, have now been restored and converted into flats, shops and restaurants.
Trondheim is reputed to be the town in Norway with the most restaurants and cafes per person. You can find something for every taste and wallet. Local food is popular, and local farmers supply the town restaurants with fresh ingredients.
