Trondheim is situated in the centre of Norway.
Trondheim is dominated by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology; its more than 25,000 students are a lot in a city with merely 160,000 inhabitants in total, and this contributes greatly to the city's economy.
Trondheim is the oldest of Norway's major cities, and its old heritage can still be traced in and around the city centre. The marvellous Nidaros Cathedral, the largest church of Northern Europe, towers over the city centre, which is roughly the area inside the serpentining Nidelva river. The city boasts a rich, cultural heritage, but is still a major centre. Even if the size is modest, there's a lot going on in Trondheim. Music, arts, culture, alternative politics, nightlife, student life... all combines into making Trondheim one of the most exciting city centres of Northern Europe.
Close by Trondheim, you can go on a Musk Oxen Safari in Dovrefjell-Sunndalsfjella national park. It is the only place in Norway, and one of few places in the world, where you can get close to the musk ox. Join a safari through the national park with guides who know where to find these majestic animals and can safeguard both you and the animals. Never approach the animals on your own, but keep a distance of at least 200 metres.
Røros is also not far away. This world heritage town is considered one of the most interesting places in Trøndelag. A delightful mixture of historic charm and sophistication creates an adventurous atmosphere.
