Useful Visitor Information

Trondheim is situated where the river Nidelva meets the Trondheim fjord, 500 km from the Polar Circle. The city plays an important part in Norwegian culture and history, and was founded by viking king Olav Tryggvason more than a thousand years ago, in 997 AD. It was Norway’s first capital, and it still is the coronation city. It is home to the Nidaros Cathedral, Europe’s northernmost gothic cathedral which is said to be built on the grave of Norway’s patron saint king Olav Haraldsson and has been a destination for pilgrims for centuries.

Modern Trondheim provides the intimacy of the small town and the many choices of a big city. The downtown area hosts museums, cafes, restaurants and concert scenes, cobblestone streets, old warehouses and colourful wooden buildings. Trondheim is also the technology capital of Norway. Both the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and SINTEF, Scandinavia’s largest independent research organisation, are located here. The city boasts a combination of education, research and business communities which attracts an international workforce and student body, and the large student population makes it buzz with life. Every other year, two student festivals are organised by student volunteers. UKA is Norway’s largest arts and music festival, while ISFiT, the International Student Festival in Trondheim, is a thematic festival that attracts participants from all over the world, as well as world leaders that address and inspire them.

In 2010, Trondheim celebrates 250 years as a ‘city of learning’. The Royal Norwegian Society of Sciences and Letters was founded in Trondheim in 1760, while the Norwegian Institute of Technology (NTH) was created in 1910. The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) has its roots in both of these institutions. Today, NTNU is Norway’s second largest university, with 20000 students studying a range of disciplines at seven different faculties. It is the country’s main academic institution for technology and the natural sciences, with equally strong programmes in the social sciences, the arts and humanities, medicine, architecture and fine art.
