  • Bakklandet, Gamle Bybro and the wharfs

    Trondheim Things to Do

    Next to Gamle Bybro you will find the most attractive of these old wodden houses along the river Nida. They certainly look best in the morning-sun and when you take the pics from one of the bridges there. Next to the bicycle-lift there is also a small square that will reach to the river and will allow you to make photos of the houses of the...

  • Stiftsgården

    Trondheim Things to Do

    The Royal Residence was built in 1778 and is made of wood! There are guided tours through the rooms and to judge from the pictures on the websites that I have seen, it must be really worthwhile! Unfortunately our time was limited, so we did not go inside, but we did enjoy the surrounding gardens, where many Trondheimers were relaxing in the sun!

    Trondheim Things to Do

    Don't forget to stop by the bookstore and get a souvenir. Like all college bookstores, NTNU carries school-related paraphernalia and souvenir. Unfortunately, like other college bookstores, its price ain't cheap. However, some are good for their price. While visiting NTNU, I bought a keychain that looks like the school logo (a square-shaped pewter...

  • Vår Frue Kirke

    Trondheim Things to Do

    Vår Frue Kirke does not look very special from outside, but the interior is really worth seeing although this church is also a so-called "open church" that means it is open all day and even untill 11.00pm and it is used also as a place to warm up, drink some coffee or take a nap on one of the benches by homeless people, drug addicts etc. But dont...

  • Kristiansten

    Trondheim Things to Do

    Kristiansten fortress was built on a small hill above Trondheim and it dates back to the year 1691. There is a museum. but that was under reconstruction, while I was in Trondheim in September 2009. At least I was able to enter the innercourt and see some old cannons and get a great view over the city from up there.

  • The bicyckle lift Trampe

    Trondheim Things to Do

    This is a really funny and also unique sight : A lift that helps cyclers to go uphill with the help of a tiny platform, where they post there right foot, while sitting on the bicycle and they are pushed uphill that way. Unfortunately you will need a special card in order to use this lift, but I am sure watching others is a lot better than taking it...

  • Nordre gate Pedestrian street

    Trondheim Things to Do

    After we left the pier, we continued to walk east along Fjordgata, then right (south) into Nordre Gate, a cobbled-stone street closed to traffic. There were a motley of retail shops there but I have to say that quite a number of things were extremely expensive here. A Sony Memory Stick that would normally cost around USD$50 back home in Singapore...

  • Lekendal Stadium

    Trondheim Things to Do

    If you are interested in football you might not know so many norwegian teams, but Rosenborg is a team you must have heard about. And also their legendary coach Nils Arne Eggen, who quit in 2002. (Allthough I heard he would return now (again)) It's not easy for me to write this next part as I am from Oslo and my team is Vålenga... ;) But Rosenborg...

  • City Bike

    Trondheim Things to Do

    Try one of the free bicykles and the bicykle elevator. Bicykles can be picked up just about everywhere in the city centre. If you find any of these peculiar looking bikes in the city without anybody on them, you can pick it up. If its atached with a chain, just push 10 NOK (May be more now, this was in 1998) into the lock. You'll get the coin back...
