Enroute from Bodø to Oslo by train, I made a pit stop for the ancient capital of Norway. Glad I did, this bustling university town has a rich past with obvious reminders everywhere! I enjoyed exploring the place by foot and slowly uncovering the rich past , bit by bit. The highlights of my walking tour were :
1)The colourful warehouses in Bryggen in Old Trondheim ( see photo above ).
Honestly, I preferred the Bryggen over here compared to the popular one in Bergen. Click open my pages to see why.
This amazing gothic structure is Trondheim's most dominant landmark and Scandinavia's largest medieval building. Did I also mention that it is also the most popular pilgrimage site in Scandinavia? Follow the footsteps of the pilgrims and see this amazing place.
For a bird's eye view of Trondheim, huff and puff your way to Kristianten Fort, 10 min away from Old Trondheim. Click here to find out more about its morbid past...
