Everything You Need To Know About Leiebil Trondheim

* Sponsored post 

Aurora chasers travel to the Arctic north, whereas artsy types go to slick Oslo. The remainder of Norway is sometimes overlooked in a rush to these A-list locations. But make sure to include Trondheim, the nation's former capital and 3rd largest city, on your schedule. 

There are lots of reasons to stay, with Scandinavia's most significant medieval edifice, banging nightclubs, and museums to enchant your warm socks off. I’ve actually visited Trondheim myself. b.c. (before children!), and it was absolutely wonderful; I fell in love with Norway and there’s a lot to see in this city.

The following are seven of the best reasons why people can hardly resist this city: 

Nidaros Domkirke is a medieval wonderland

With exquisite tracery and columns of bishops peering out from its stone fa├žade, the world's most northern medieval structure elicits awe. The Nidaros Domkirke stands on the burial of Saint Olav, Norway's "eternal king" and patron saint, credited with converting the kingdom to Christianity.

Surprisingly, the Domkirke attracts two distinct types of pilgrims. Some have traveled the 640-kilometer Pilgrim's Route from Oslo, which has been traveled since before the eleventh century. The others are huge fans of Mayhem, a Norwegian death metal band that used the cathedral as the cover for their first full-length record.

Hope you like rock music

You don't have to wait until the sun sets in Trondheim to rock out when it comes to loud guitars. Rockheim is a museum and cultural hub that takes you on a journey from the innocent origins of postwar rock in Norway to present heavy metal superstars. 

You can make the most of it with listening positions and interactive displays; however, we wouldn't recommend utilizing Rockheim as your own personalized karaoke club in reserved Norway. When the sun sets underneath the horizon, continue the theme by heading to Fru Lundgreen, an underground pub with a continuous soundtrack playing Scandinavian rock.

Learn about Norwegian folklore and history

Trondheim's landmarks and old buildings are immaculately preserved, and the city oozes nostalgia as a result. With its initial stones set in the 12th century, the Archbishop's Residence is Scandinavia's first secular edifice.

The Archbishop's Palace Museum is located next to it, under the shade of the Domkirke. It is an award-winning attraction that traces Trondheim's roots dates to the Iron Age. However, the Folk Museum is the best time machine to Trondheim's agrarian past (summer only). More than 80 ancient buildings, predominantly wooden houses in the style of the 18th century and farmlands, can be found in this open-air environment. Discover more here

Discover the peaceful Monks' Island

If your ears are buzzing, take a boat ride to Munkholmen (Monks' Island) to connect with Trondheim's spiritual aspect. This tiny isle, surrounded by the icy waters of the Trondheimsfjord, had a grim beginning as an execution site. Still, after the introduction of Christianity in Norway, it transformed into a Benedictine monastery.

It was used as a dungeon in the 17th century, but now it serves as a summer playground. Munkholmen is ideal for picnics with thermos tea and cinnamon rolls, exploring the ruins of an ancient fort, and swimming in the summertime. In favorable weather, the boats run every hour.

Taste Norway's vibrant side

Up north, the weather is anything but grey. You need to make it to the Old Town Bridge, which is also known as Gamle Bybro, to explore Trondheim's most colorful neighborhood. A wonderful view of storehouses in colors ranging from yellow to dark blue may be seen from this towering red span, generating a kaleidoscope of reflections in the Nidelven River.

It's no wonder that the bridge is regarded as the "Gate of Happiness" if appreciating the panorama from sunny Bybro enhances your spirits. After a terrible fire in 1681, the bridge represented a new beginning for Trondheim. Bakklandet, one ofTrondheim's most scenic streets, begins on the bridge's east side. The pastel-colored shop fronts and restaurants that line this cobblestone street are painted in cheerful tones of pink and red. Just imagine the sight! 

Delicious meals and beverages

It's no surprise that eating out in Norway may quickly deplete your bank account. Baklandet Skydsstation, for example, is a relatively priced restaurant in the city. This eighteenth-century structure exudes charm with walls covered in embroideries and old photos; it's a great place to get herring plates, rye bread sandwiches, or fish soup. It's best to wash it all down with one of the more than a 100 different kinds of aquavit. The rotating lunch specialties at Persilleriet are a must-try for vegetarians.

While the appearance of Scottish-themed bar Macbeth and the Three Lions English bar may throw Brits off, there are plenty of nighttime spots with a more local flavor. Craft beers in a comfortable setting may be found at Trondheim Mikrobryggeri.

Fjords, fishing, and ski slopes are all close to the city

The city is only a few walking distances from the beautiful outdoors. With picturesque islets and rugged coves where sea eagles fly, Trondheimsfjord is Norway's third-longest at 126 kilometers. For travelers who wish to cook their own fish or just bob in calm waters, the fjord is ideal fishing terrain. Early spring and late winter are the greatest fishing seasons, so bring your thermals.

Take a 1-hour drive (or 45-minute train ride) south of Trondheim towards Vassfjellet, a ski resort with 500 meters of vertical. Furthermore, Are, a Swedish ski region with lots of powder and an unspoiled atmosphere, is simply 2 hours away if you ride the train. But what if you rent a car?

Plenty of tourists that visit the city or any other country for that matter usually rely on rental cars so they can go anywhere they want. You won’t have to wait for the train, the bus or the taxi to come and pick you up. Plus, taxi drivers overcharge when it comes to tourists. 

Renting a vehicle is your best option because you get to use it to your advantage. Drive it as long as you need it, and then you can return it to the rental company.
