WATERFRONT ARCHITECTURAL GEMS IN TRONDHEIM

From skiing to sailing on the fjord, there’s never a dull moment in breathtaking Trondheim! Stay in the city centre close to Nidaros Cathedral and the beautiful wooden buildings of Bakklandet at the Radisson Blu Royal Garden Hotel, known for its classic quayside architecture. As the closest hotel to the airport, the luxury Radisson Blu Hotel, Trondheim Airport is a great choice when you’ve an early or late flight to catch.

Trondheim has a long and exciting history and was founded by Viking King Olav Tryggvason in 997. For 200 years it was the capital of Norway, and in 1152 the city became an Archbishopric. In the same year the country's first school, the Cathedral School, was also founded here. Trondheim developed rapidly to become a leading commercial centre for the area, a role it still retains today as the region's largest city. It has everything from special niche shops, chain stores and large shopping centres.

The city has changed its name many times. The oldest known name is Nidaros, which means the city by the mouth of the river Nid. It was in the late Middle Ages that Trondheim "home of the Trønder" became more common. During the Danish rule (1450-1814) the name was written "Trondhjem", but it was more commonly referred to as Byen or Staden. In 1930/31 it was heavily debated whether the city should be named Nidaros or Trondhjem. It all ended in a compromise; the name Trondheim was chosen. But even though Trondheim is the official name used, most residents still refer to the city as Trondhjem and themselves as 'Trondhjemmere'.

Trondheim is often referred to as the Technology Capital of Norway. NTNU, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology and the research institute SINTEF merit the biggest credit for this. NTNU has a national responsibility for education and research within technology. 80% of the country's civil engineers are educated here and many former NTNU students currently hold important positions in business and industry. NTNU also focuses on areas such as energy and the environment, medicine, marine and maritime R & D, as well as IT and communications technology. NTNU has one of Norway's best student environments and the student community in Trondheim, called 'Samfundet,' also has three of Trondheim's best concert stages; every second year Norway's biggest cultural festival UKA is organised under the auspices of the student community. Student media in Trondheim 'Under Dusken','Student-TV' and 'Studentradion' are also partly run from student buildings and are an important part of the community's identity.

It is said that it rains diagonally in Trondheim. The climate is mild and damp, thanks to the city's location inside a mild climate zone and despite its proximity to the polar climate zone. It usually rains around 200 days a year in Trondheim, so an umbrella always comes in handy. Despite the climate here Trondheim is a stunning green city and on a sunny day there really is nowhere more beautiful.
