Located along the shore of Trondheim Fjord at the mouth of River Nidelva, the city is the third most populous municipality of Norway. A region famous for being the capital city of the country during the Viking period, it has great architectural beauty. Home to a number of Gothic style structures that are quite striking. The cathedrals, old town bridge, fortresses and museums, the place has a number of tourist spots in and around the area. Though gravely populated, it is a hospitable region with visitors present most of the time. Along with the old style and charm of the past, Trondheim also has modern locations appreciating the present trends in music. The Rockheim for example is a place for those enthusiastic and interested in rock and pop style of music. The number of museums and forts is high in this area, especially intriguing the history enthusiasts. The region has a history and culture as rich as its tourist spots.

As beautiful as the place, the history here speaks volumes. Founded in 997, it has been established as a trading post since then, particularly due to the harbour. During the Viking Age, the city had served as the capital of Norway until 1217. Since 1152, it has been the seat of the Lutheran Diocese of Nidaros and the Nidaros Cathedral. Present-day Trondheim dates back to 1964 when it emerged along with Byneset, Leistrand, Strida and Tiller. The rock carvings of the region speak of a much older history where people had been residing here for a long period of time. The second world war saw the occupancy of this place by Nazi Germany which lasted until the end of the war. The residents too were witnesses to the harsh treatment. A separate place for the stay of filtered people by the Nazis was to be constructed, the remains of which can still be seen in the city. The city has developed in leaps and bounds after these incidents and now is a host to numerous locations of ethereal and charming beauty.

Best time to visit Trondheim

With temperatures varying greatly in each season, trips must be planned much earlier to this place. The months between June to August have the perfect temperatures with the least possible precipitation. It is quite crowded during this period with the prices also being higher than usual. Late bookings and last-minute trips might prove to be costlier than expected during these months. The months from September to November witness a cold and snowy environment. Humidity and cold are at a good high because of which the visitors reduce significantly. Planning accordingly and appropriately will be very helpful in ensuring a memorable and budget-fitting tour. 

 

The city has an extensive and properly built transport system popularly known as AtB which means ‘A to B’. Travelling between places is quite feasible with public transport and most of the time people tend to avoid private transport. The region has several public buses running between places. A map for guidance is often available openly which can be used as a direction for boarding the right bus. These are often full of passengers given the number of commuters dependent each day. Recently, in 2019, numerous buses have been added to the existing services, increasing the options to choose from. They also have a digital system of payment apart from cash. A number of offers are also given on the services offered along with hour-based passes to roam around.

A well-built tram service also runs in the city, similar to the bus system. Numerous tramways were once used to ferry people from one place to another. Now, they are not in use except for one route. This runs from the centre to Lian via Byasen to the west of the river. It is mostly used by those living in Byasen and those venturing to the recreational area of Bymarka. The best part about travelling here is that bus tickets can be used for the trams too. The digital payment system here is quite sophisticated and user friendly. Visitors can take day passes that cost 105kr, a 72-hour pass that costs 165 kr and a 7-day pass amounting to 235 kr. These would be much higher if taken on a trip to trip basis.

Tickets of the journey can either be booked much early on the AtB app or taken instantaneously. The rewarding part is the offers on the AtB app’s early bookings. The prices and passes are similar for both the trams and buses. The mode of transport and payment can be chosen according to one’s convenience. Another less popular yet oft chosen mode of transfer is the private method. Many private vehicles for both hire and taxi service exist in the country. The taxi services in Trondheim are quite reliable and affordable. The hustle of public transport and waiting for the buses or tram to come would take a backseat by choosing private transfers. A smooth transition between the places would happen, given the right choice. 

The vehicles for private transport can either be booked before reaching the place or can be chosen from instantaneously. Either way, comfort levels remain the same. During the season months, keeping in mind the rush and number of visitors, booking early would be a great measure. Rydeu helps you choose from a wide range of options available with us. Our choices fit into every budget smoothly ensuring a happy ride around for everyone. The woes of public transport would come to an end by choosing Rydeu to make your tours around the city. 

This place uses the Trondheim Airport Vaernes to reach the beautiful and historical city. From the airport, several modes of transport to the centre are available. Choosing the mode of transfer depends on many factors such as luggage, distance, place of stay, etc. The route is connected by both public and private transport comfortably. On the public transfer front, a number of buses and trains run between the two places. Often they are chosen due to the conveyance and frequency. There are trains dedicated to the route between the airport and the city centre which take about 35 minutes. Apart from this usual one, another one by the name VY local train Trondheim runs between the places. This extends up to Sweden too.

Vaernes-ekspressen is one of the bus-based modes of transfer which connects the central station to the airport. It runs between Vaernes, Ranheim, Solsiden, Royal garden, Torget, NTNU and Moholt. Another local bus also runs between the places from Vaernes. The bus stop is a four-minute walk from the terminal. A schedule of the buses can be found on the AtB app or in the bus stop. The services are quite frequent and reliable too. Apart from these two, the mode of private transfer is available here. Directly outside the airport, a taxi stand is located. A number of taxis are available for booking which can be used. Car hires are also available in the region which needs to be booked earlier. 

The taxis can be boarded directly from the airport or can be booked early. The airport taxi Trondheim is quite affordable and easier to commute. The journey time would be reduced greatly and the struggle that comes with public transport would come down too. Rydeu gives you numerous options to choose from and avoid the burden of travel expenses on you. We have a plan to fit every budget and allow smooth sailing of your trip to Trondheim. The offers we give are easily understandable and can be availed without any discrepancy.

Commanded by the Norweigan constitution as the official location for the crowning of the monarch, this cathedral was built by King Olav Kyrre. The place has witnessed numerous christenings and burials of the Kings here. The church was built on the tomb of St. Olav, a patron saint of Norway. The architecture has various influences on it with different parts having a different style. The primary influence of Romanesque architecture, Norman architecture and the long choir are visible. The cathedral had survived a number of fires and had been restored. The complete restoration was done in the early 1900s. The history, art and architecture of this place is charming and provides great knowledge of the region.

Kristianstein fortress:

Located on a hill to the east of the city, this fortress was built as a protective element. The path to reaching this place is quite a climb up, but the view from up is ethereal and heartwarming. A brief and beautiful view from here is paired with a small museum. The details here are a once in a lifetime experience. The fortress was also used by the Nazi Germany to capture the Norweigan resistance members during World war II. A memorial stands tall here in memory of those executed during the grim phase of the 20th century. It is a reminder of the ups and lows that the country and the city rose from victoriously.
