Today is day 17 of our roadtrip in Scandinavia. Yesterday we had a hell of day with a 7-hour drive from our campsite in Fauske to our campsite in Namsos. We were all very tired. Today is much better. It is a 325 kilometer drive from Namsos to Oppdal. It leaves some time for a visit to Trondheim.  Trondheim is the third-largest city in Norway.

Gamle Bybro, the old town bridge

Gamle Bybro, the old town bridge crosses the river Nidelven. It connects the city centre with the popular neighbourhood Bakklandet. From the bridge you have a spectacular view of the NTNU university buildings, the wharves, Bakke Bridge and the Trondheim fjord. Its nickname is The Portal of Happiness.😊

You haven’t seen all of Trondheim without having crossed the old town bridge from the city centre to the Bakklandet neighbourhood. Here you can find many inviting cafes and restaurants and unique boutiques. Very unique is also the bike lift ‘Trampe’. It helps bikers all the way up from the bridge to the Kristiansten Fort. It is the first and only bicycle lift in the world.

The colorful wharves and their reflection

Trondheim is famous for it’s colorful wharves and their reflection in the Nidelven river. The wharves remind of the importance of Trondheim as a merchant city in the 19th and 20th century.

We didn’t have a lot of time when visiting Trondheim, but when you do: kayaking in the river Nidelven gives you a great opportunity to see the old wharfs from the water so I would definitely rent a kayak.😊

The traders of Trondheim used the wharfs mostly as storage space. Unfortunately, the wharfs were often destroyed by the many fires which raged through the city.
