I visited Trondheim as a part of a chat group meeting for crazy people like me,)
My train arrived in Trondheim at 10.30PM, and it was getting dark. I could not find the youth hostel and not a single person was in sight. And I could not call for a taxi, when I didn’t know where I was. The only people I saw were all new residents, and had never heard about the hostel. So I finally arrived there at 11.50 , and got myself a dark room, which I thought was sharing with some other sleeping visitors. So in the middle of the night the light was turned by some loudly German girls, who did not know that they had a new roommate, during the late hours they were out.
I spent two days in Trondheim: I saw the Nidaros Cathedral, joined some activities in the University day’s festival, and eat at Tyholt tower, stretching 120 meters (400ft) into the sky.
The name Trondheim originally meant: “home of the strong and the fertil ones” in Norse language ?
The city was founded by Viking King Olav Tryggvason in AD997
It was the nation’s first capital.
The city was and still is a popular destination for pilgrims?
Every sixth inhabitants is a student
•They have a bicycle lift called “Trampe”
it has been said to be the first lift of it's kind. unfortunatly I newer got to see the lift in action. more travel advice
The special things about this restaurant is that it's in the top of a tower that rotates! A perfect place to see... more travel advice
