Trondheim Christmas Market


The Trondheim Christmas Market, or “Julemarkedet”, is one of the largest Christmas Markets in the Nordics and it’s the holiday highlight in Trondheim. Situated right in the heart of the city, surrounding the iconic statue of the city’s founder Olav Tryggvason, this magical Christmas festival is brimming with coziness and Nordic tradition! With the perfect mix of purpose and pleasure, people come here to pick out their Christmas trees or wander through the charming wooden booths to buy gifts. However, many love huddling around open wood fires in the Lavvo (the large teepee) whilst enjoying a warm meal and sipping on locally brewed beers, spiced wine (gløgg), or hot cocoa.

Christmas at Sverresborg!

Follow the cheeky elves! Christmas at Sverresborg will be held during the first three weekends of Advent, with the classic Christmas atmosphere and traditional activities for young and old. Enjoy the smell of roasted almonds, eat Christmas porridge in the lavvo as the choir sings Christmas carols. Wander over to the carpentry workshop, send a wish list to Santa Claus, and join in and sing at the Christmas tree lighting and experience the magical Blue Hour under King Sverres’ castle ruins.
