Munkholmen is a small charming island in the Trondheim Fjord, approx. 2 kilometers distance straight out of Trondheim. Munkholmen is a popular swimming spot for the city’s population and visitors during the summer. There is a large green area perfect for sunbathing and playing, as well as a beach perfect for swimming. Bring your own barbecue, picnic basket or use the café. The café is open during the day, every day of the season. Here you will find a good selection of different sandwiches, hot and cold lunch dishes, cakes, ice cream, coffee and other drinks. The menu may vary slightly from day to day.


Boat across to Munkholmen goes from Ravnkloa which is at the end of the Munkegata street in the middle of Trondheim city center.


Wheelchair users rely on assistance to get on board the boat, but out on Munkholmen itself the accessibility is good. Please note that access to the beach has limited accessibility and therefore not suitable for wheelchairs / strollers. Bring your dog? Yes, the dog is allowed to join the boat free of charge.
