About Trondheim

Think of it as an ancient city with a modern soul. Trondheim was Norway's first capital city, founded more than 1,000 years ago, in 997 - but now instead of Viking raiders and Hanseatic traders, you'll find jazz musicians and an international student body savouring Trondheim city life.
