Top 10 attractions in The Trondheimer with Irro Charter
Trondheim is a city on the Trondheimer Fjord in central Norway. The 11th-century Gothic Nidaros Cathedral has an ornate rose window and a detailed west facade. Nearby is the Erkebispegården museum with archaeological finds and sculptures, including gargoyles that were formerly attached to the cathedral. The Ringve Museum is a music museum in a former manor house with a barn.
Trondheim, the third largest city in Norway, is also one of the oldest in the world. Established as a trading post by the Vikings in AD 997, it was the capital of Norway until 1217, and new kings are still crowned here. Constructed on the peninsula and connected to the mainland at its western end, Trondheim is the main town of Sør-Trøndelag County in central Norway. It is a common stop on the Hurtigruten route, a coastal ferry that connects towns from Bergen to Kirkenes, and its position on the Trondheimsfjord makes it a good base for fjord cruises. Like most of northern Norway, Trondheim has endured no darkness from mid-May to mid-July, and although it benefits from a mostly mild maritime climate, there is decent skiing in the surrounding areas.

Winter and Christmas lights in Trondheim
Nidaros CathedralFounded by King Olav Kyrre (1066-93) over the tomb of the patron saint of Norway, St. Olav, the Nidaros Cathedral is widely regarded as the most beautiful church in Scandinavia. The Cathedral is the northernmost medieval cathedral in the world and one of the city's main tourist attractions. Kings have been baptized and buried here, and since 1814 it has been a condition of the Norwegian constitution that the king be crowned at Trondheim Cathedral. The transept and the chapter house are of late Romanesque style, inspired by the Norman architecture of England, while the long choir with its beautiful south doorway was added in the 13th century, along with the massive nave and tower. After being destroyed many times by fire, the church was completely rebuilt in the early 1900s.
Bakklandet and Gamle Bybro (Old Town Bridge)Cross the Nidelva River through the red arches of the Gamle Bybro (Old Town Bridge) to meet the picturesque lanes and colorful old houses of the Bakklandet neighborhood. It feels like a small town, and the historic wooden riverside buildings have become small stores, galleries, cafés, and restaurants. Stroll along the river to see the buildings that line the opposite side. This is the most historic and atmospheric neighborhood in Trondheim.
Kristiansten FortressStanding on a hill to the city's east, Kristiansten Fortress (Kristiansten Festning) was built between 1681 and 1695 to protect the city against attack. It is a bit of a climb, but admission to the tower and its small museum is free, and the views across the city are lovely. Grim reminders of the fortress's 20th-century history are the cells in which the Nazis held members of the Norwegian Resistance during the World War II occupation, and the memorial to those who were executed here.
RockheimFans of pop and rock music will enjoy this ride down the Memory Lane and the opportunity to hear some of the greats of Norway. Collections of the museum are seen along with interactive displays, videos and recordings. The permanent exhibition, The Time Tunnel, brings to life modern Norwegian musical and cultural past from the 1950s to the present through sound and performance recordings. Changing exhibitions focus on particular aspects of music and culture. This is a museum where you can get actively involved, jamming with famous songs, releasing your inner graffiti artist, dancing, or making your own remixes. The restaurant of the museum has a view of the city.
Archbishop´s Palace and MuseumThe medieval Archbishop's Palace (Erkebispegården) is not only the oldest building of its kind in Scandinavia, it is also one of the best preserved palaces of its kind in Europe. The west wing of the palace dates back to the late 12th century and now houses a variety of historic exhibits, including the Norwegian Crown Regalia exhibition-a stunning array of Norway's sparkling crown jewels-as well as the Army and Resistance Museums, focusing on Trondheim 's military past from Viking times to World War II.

If you're fortunate enough to be there at the right time, this is an exceptional location to see the Northern Lights.
Sverresborg Trøndelag Folk Museumg Around the ruins of King Sverre 's castle, parts of which date back to the 12th century, this open-air museum of Norwegian history and culture contains more than 80 buildings reflecting village and city life, as well as the culture of the local Sami people.
