Old part of the city is nice to walk around, and sit down for a coffee, and is also a short trip to the Kristiansten Fortress with a nice view over the city.

This is such a charming and beautiful ancient wooden bridge, located quite centrally in Trondheim. One end of the bridge has two ancient, beautifully carved portals that stand together and are called "Lykkens portal" (the portal of happiness). Both the railing on the bridge itself...More

Cute old bridge that serves its purpose of getting pedestrians from one side of the river to the other. Go from St. Olav’s to the Old Town and take a photograph.

Looks more like the entrance to 'chinatown' than an ancient bridge (Having seen the one in Prague). Nice views of the wooden warehouses from the centre of the bridge.

Fantastic bit of architecture - well worth strolling by as part of a visit to the old town. Take in the bike lift too - amazing bit of eco-tech!

Especially nice to see from a canoe in the river. You can rent them at the edge of the city en row to the harbour. Abvit crowded when you are standing on the bridge and limited view.

A lovely bridge that is worth the walk to. A really nice historical wharf area. Completely different to the new town area.
