Join this tour for insight into the City of Kings as Trondheim, the one-time capital of Norway, is popularly referred to. Begin with a drive through the heart of the city, passing streets of traditional wooden houses, before arriving at Nidaros Cathedral. Work on this magnificent medieval structure began in 1070 and it marks the burial site of the patron saint of Norway, St Olav. In ancient times, kings of Norway were hailed at Oretinget, near the Nidelva, but more recently kings and queens have been crowned or blessed in the cathedral.


After a guided tour of the cathedral your tour continues to the adjacent Archbishop’s Palace. It was the Archbishop’s main residence from the middle of the 12th century until the reformation in 1537. Now it houses an archaeological museum and the crown jewels, which you can admire before continuing to your last stop. Stiftsgarden is one of the largest wooden buildings in Norway and was originally built in 1778 for the rich widow of the Privy Council. It is now a royal residence used by King Harald V and Queen Sonja when they visit the city. See the Throne Room and the Queen’s Salon as well as some of the other 140 exquisitely decorated rooms before returning to the ship.


Need to Know:

Note: This tour includes walking on level ground for approximately 0.28 miles in the cathedral and at the palace and for 0.11 miles in Stiftsgarden. You’ll need to negotiate a flight of stairs in Stiftsgarden and a few steps at the cathedral and palace.
