Explore Trondheim from land and water
This is a perfect combination to get an impression about Trondheim. On the first part you enjoy the city from the waterside on the river Nid. The start is near the cruise pier at the modern part of Trondheim. From here you will go back in time along the old colorful wharves and under the Old red City Bridge, known as portal of happiness and with a view on Nidaros Cathedral. The boat trip ends at the historical fish market Ravnkloa.
From Ravnkloa we start our walk through the city passing the most interesting points. Following Munkegata we come to Stiftsgården, the royal residence in Trondheim, and to the market square, where we can take a closer look at the statue of the city’s founder, the Viking King Olav Tryggvason, which towers over this busy square.
At Nidaros Cathedral, Norway's national monument which is built over the burial place of St. Olav, Norway's patron saint, we will make a stop at the special West side. Here you will get to know the history of the cathedral. The construction of this enormous building with countless details and decorations, began as early as 1070.
Next highlight will be the Old red town Bridge which we cross over to the other side. From the bridge you have one of the best views over the colorful wharves. On the other side you will see the world's only bicycle lift, heading up to the university.
Then we enter the area of the town called Bakklandet, which has managed to preserve its charming wooden architecture. Originally this was the industrial part of the city, but now the old factories have been renovated into desirable homes surrounded by grocery stores and gourmet restaurants.
We arrive in the modern part of Trondheim called Solsiden (the sunny side) where many students spend their free time sitting outside the cafés, before our walk ends at the cruise pier.
