Trondheim Old Town

On this combined bus and walking tour you can experience the old history and life of Trondheim.

Founded in 997AD, Trondheim was the first capital of Norway and is where the new kings and queens still receive their ceremonial blessing. At Kristiansten Fortress there is a pleasant view to the city centre, and from here you will head downhill on foot through Bakklandet. Here, most of the houses are small and built from wood by sailors and fishermen. Nowadays the buildings have been restored, giving the area a new lease of life. Among the curiosities in the area is a special bicycle lift – called Trampe – up the steep Brubakken Hill.

Continue on foot across the wooden Old City Bridge to Nidaros Cathedral. The Cathedral is built on the gravesite of Norway’s patron saint – and is therefore the original St Olav’s Church – an important destination for pilgrims before the reformation. Entrance to the Cathedral is not included, but there is time to enter if you wish, otherwise there will be time to browse around the gift shop.

The tour will then continue to Sverresborg Open Air Museum, to discover the urban and rural culture of Trøndelag county. The building provide an authentic cross-section of life and architecture.

(Duration: approx. 3 hours)
