Church
“Visiting Trondheim without going to the cathedral is like visiting Paris without climbing the Eiffel Tower. It is quite touristy and expensive, but for most people a must-do. And you can choose to admire it from the outside for free. If you go inside, I recommend to pay the extra 50 NOK to go up to the tower, with a great view of Trondheim.”

Shopping Centre
“Trondheim Torg is a shopping center located at the square in Trondheim. The shopping center has 73 shops and seven dining areas spread over four floors. The center was established in 1992 as a counterweight to City Syd, which is located outside the city and which is among Norway's largest shopping centers. After the expansion in 2002, which was based on a whole quarter, a number of wooden houses along the Prinsens gate became part of the center. This expansion meant that Trondheim Torg is now one of the largest shopping centers north of Dovre. [1]”

Island
“Munkholmen (norrønt Hólmr, Niðarhólmr) is a small island of 13 acres located approx. 2 km outside Trondheim city center in the Trondheim Fjord. In the summer season, the island is now a popular departure point, with opportunities for swimming and sunbathing. There is also a café there and a small restaurant with outdoor seating. There is a boat from Ravnkloa in Trondheim. Munkholmen has a rich history and is protected. You hear about Munkholmen in Snorre, where it is called Nidarholm and was used as a courtyard. Until the Reformation, Nidarholm Monastery was on the island. In the 17th century, the name Munkholmen was used, and the fortress of Munckholm was established.
