Trondheim

4.1
The oldest of Norway's major cities, Trondheim sits on the southern shore of one of the country's longest fjords. Founded over a thousand years ago, the city boasts a rich cultural and architectural heritage, its historical city center dominated by the second-largest church in northern Europe. Although it houses a major university of science and technology, which attracts young scholars from around the world, Trondheim remains a modestly sized urban center with a pedestrian-friendly downtown area. To see the city from a different perspective and observe one of its famous sunsets, take a guided boat tour along the Nidelva River. Plan your vacation with our Norway road trip planner and discover the best things to do in Trondheim.

Where to stay in Trondheim

One of Norway’s major cities, Trondheim offers a wide range of accommodations. As with any Norwegian city, it’s easy to find the high-end hotels with big price tags in the city’s historical center. With a student population of roughly 25,000, the town also caters to more budget-conscious travelers with a fair number of options. Look for reasonably priced hostels near the university. If you’re not opposed to roughing it the way Norwegians love to, check out one of the many campsites in the city’s outskirts. You'll still have access to the city thanks to the local buses that run regularly.
