With a population of 193,000 inhabitants, Trondheim is the third largest city in Norway. It was founded in 997 a.C. and was called Nidaros until the Middle Ages and was the capital of Norway between 1030 and 1217.
Trondheim has several of the most visited sites in its region, Trøndelag.
Nidaros Cathedral, located in the center, is an important historical monument of the city. The history of the cathedral and the saint Olav make it one of the most popular pilgrimage destinations in Europe. The road to Trondheim has the status of a European cultural route, in line with the routes to Rome and Santiago de Compostela.
The intimate city center is combined with numerous stores, especially in Bakklandet, creating a special atmosphere.
In the center of Trondheim everything is within walking distance. The river Nid meanders around the center and defines its boundaries. On our guided tour, we will walk through the streets to feel the history of the city, stretching from the Middle Ages to our current technological society.
Leaving the New Harbour area, we pass the royal residence Stiftsgården and cross the market square with founder Olav Tryggvason atop his statue.
Our walk continues to Nidaros Cathedral, where we will have an exterior tour of the area.
Back on the ship, we will cross the Old Town Bridge to reach the oldest part of the city, called Bakklandet, with its old wooden piers rising along the waterfront.
