For more than a thousand years, Trondheim has been a center for development of science, culture, infrastructure and innovation. The city is dominated by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and other technology-oriented institutions.
Norway’s historic capital, situated at 63 degrees north, has many facets. Thanks to the Nidaros Cathedral, the city has been a destination for pilgrims for hundreds of years.
When strolling the old streets among traditional wooden houses, it’s like traveling back in time. But, do not be fooled by the cosy little alleyways: Trondheim has developed into a modern city that has a whole lot more to offer. A vibrant cultural life with a wide range of exhibitions and festivals, restaurants serving local culinary delights, cutting-edge technology, and hiking trails – Trondheim has it all. With its colourful warehouses, waterways and wooded hills, Trondheim is one for the picture album. Fishing boats putter around the harbour, gulls wheel and screech overhead, and nature is always close at hand.
