SHORE EXCURSION TRONDHEIM: itinerary
Our Trondheim shore excursion begins at the pier and then heads to Nidaros Cathedral. This is the northernmost medieval cathedral in the world and the second largest in Scandinavia. It was built over the 11th century burial site of King Olav who later became patron saint of Norway. This Gothic cathedral is today an important site for pilgrims.
Our Trondheim shore excursion continues with a tour of the city. We’ll see the Royal Residence, otherwise known as Stiftsgården to the locals. It was built between 1774-78 and is the largest wooden palace in Scandinavia.
Next we’ll see the Old Town Bridge that was built in 1691. Its decorative wooden archways are painted a rusty-red colour and provide a charming way to cross the Nidelva River. Further upstream, old storehouses line the river. Their colourful facades create a classic image of the city which has been recreated many times in postcards and photographs.
We’ll conclude the shore excursion by passing the NTNU University before boarding the cruise ship.
