Kristiansten, Trondheim: 7 reviews and 18 photos

  Panorama of Trondheim
by bpacker

Cross Gamle Bybro and head uphill for a bird's eyeview of Trondheim. Along the way, you'll see a machanised gadget for cyclist to push themselves to the top. Don't be stupid and try it if you're not on a bike. You'll just have a fall just like Jack and Jill. So unless you think that head bandages are in vogue, trudge uphill for 10 minutes till you see a stone structure. It's interesting to note that this fort, constructed in 1681 to guard against Swedish invasions, was used as an execution ground for the Norweigian resistance movment. But we didn't see anything spooky there. All we saw was a panaromic view of Trondheim, an old gate and a cannon.

We stayed for a little while, then proceeded downhill to Kj?pmannsgata . We stopped at the intersection at Bispegate, turned right and proceeded west on Bispegate till we reached the famous Cathedral.
