Old Town Bridge, Trondheim
(4.1/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The old bybroen is idyllic. If you a tourist in the city, this is a nice place to visit. On the other side of the bridge will take you to the old town. And also you can enjoy the view of the bridge from elvem.
