Home Of Nordic Flavours

Welcome to Trondheim. Where the fusion of history, arts, technology, and green initiatives ignite a culture of innovation and rich tradition. Trondheim stands out with its progressive nature and vibrant city life, while still embodying its small-town heart.

The City is known for many exciting traits, for instance, it was the Viking capital of Norway. However, before the Pilgrims and the Viking Age, people were drawn to the region by the seafood rich fjords and vast mountains filled with wildlife and some of the most fertile soil in the country. This is the Home of Nordic Flavours.

Michelin Stars

Trondheim is home to three Michelin-starred restaurants – Credo, Fagn and Speilsalen. In 2019, Credo also received Michelin’s first-ever sustainability award.

Engage In Unique Nordic Experiences

Nowadays, few people want everything fully planned go on vacation. Often it is the unique and spontaneous experiences that create memories for life. There’s something special about connecting with a city through its history, culture, and people.

In the heart of Trondheim is Nidaros Cathedral – an ornate Gothic masterpiece. Norway’s national shrine and northern Europe’s most important pilgrimage site. Located just across the Nidelva river from the city center, under the protection of Kristiansten Fortress, Bakklandet will welcome you through the “Gates of Happiness” and give you the ultimate experience of an old town that preserves the historical spirit.

Built in the UNESCO-renowned clinker style, Trondheim By Boat takes you on a journey through Trondheim’s history – sailing on the River Nidelva, on the fjord during a colourful sunset, or in search of the Northern Lights on a dark winter night. If you want to get on your feet to explore the city’s history, art and cultural life, check out our guide, A Day in Trondheim – Art, Food and History:

A House Of Influence



Britannia Hotel opened its doors for the first time in 1870 for aristocratic Britons who came to fish the region’s legendary salmon rivers. The iconic hotel re-opened in April 2019 after a multi-year renovation. Over 150 years of luxury hospitality are marked by its six restaurants and bars, including the Michelin-starred restaurant, Speilsalen.

How To Get Here

Trondheim Airport (TRD) is Norway’s third largest airport, with direct flights to/from most airports in Norway and many international cities. The airport is the hub for Trøndelag, Namdalen, Helgeland and Sweden’s Jämtland region. The airport is only 30 minutes from Trondheim city center. Direct flights with Norwegian from Manchester and London, with KLM from Amsterdam and with SAS from London and Copenhagen, to name a few, make it possible to get to Trondheim with just one stopover from most places.


Did you know that two of Trondheim’s hotels have won 1st place during the selection of Norway’s best hotel breakfast, Twinning’s Best Breakfast? Scandic Hotel Nidelven has won the award 13 years in a row, and in 2022 the hotel took joint first place with Britannia Hotel.
