Overview

Pack your appetite and explore a city on the rise in the culinary world. The historic city of Trondheim, once a Viking capital, is now becoming a foodie destination known for its fresh, seasonal ingredients and focus on local, sustainable cuisine.

The Trøndelag Food and Brewery Festival takes place in August and the city erupts into culinary activities.  Foodies, baristas, families and beer brewing enthusiasts celebrate the food culture of Trøndelag with over 200 local producers.  Year round, whether you crave Michelin-star worthy creations or cosy cafes with traditional fare, bustling markets overflowing with fresh seafood to innovative restaurants pushing the boundaries of Nordic cuisine, Trondheim has something to tempt every palate.

Trondheim is a city rich in history and culture, making it a perfect destination for a city break. Admire Nidaros Cathedral, stroll across the Gamle Bybro (Old Town Bridge) and explore the picturesque Bakklandet neighbourhood with its colourful wooden houses. Learn about Norway’s Viking history at the Sverresborg Trondelag Folk Museum or hike up to the Kristiansten Fortress, a 17th-century defensive fortification that offers panoramic views of the city.

No matter what your interests are, you’re sure to find something to enjoy in Trondheim. The city is compact and walkable, making it easy to explore on foot. And with its friendly locals and beautiful scenery, Trondheim is a city that will stay with you long after you leave.
