Old Town Bridge, Trondheim
Categories: Bridges, Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Old Town Bridge links the city center with the colorful neighborhood of Bakklandet, filled with cozy cafes and exclusive boutiques. Although originally constructed in 1681, the current bridge reflects numerous alterations. The last adjustment included replacement of the wooden foundations with a solid concrete structure. Notice the ornamented red portals that allow the bridge to still be lifted. Urban legend says that a Norwegian composer and a member of the resistance movement Oskar Hoddø composed a waltz from this bridge one night in April 1940. The bridge was thus nicknamed the Gate of Happiness after the popular waltz.
