Where to go and what to see!
Nidaros Cathedral is a Church of Norway located in the city of Trondheim. Built over the burial site of Saint

and designated as the cathedral for the Diocese of Nidaros in 1152. After the Protestant Reformation, it was
from the Roman Catholics by the Lutheran Church in 1537. It is the northernmost medieval cathedral in the

Bakklandet is a cozy and old fashioned neighborhood of Trondheim. It lies on the east side of the Nidelva
the Bakke Bridge (Bakke bru) and the Old Town Bridge (Gamle Bybro).
The neighborhood is dominated by small, wooden houses and narrow streets. It is among the major tourist attractions in the city.
In 1965, the road plan for Trondheim proposed that the area large be demolished to make way for a four-lane motorway which would connect Elgeseter gate with Innherredsveien. The plans were met by opposition from locals, and by the early 1980s the plan was shelved, after the city's environmental council had approved depopulating the neighborhood in 1974.
Well worth a visit. :)
Ladestien (English: the Lade Trail) is a broad walking track that strolls along the Trondheimsfjord around
Lade Peninsula in the municipality of Trondheim in Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway.
The track is about 14 kilometers (8.7 mi) long. The western part of the track starts at Korsvika, about 1 kilometer (0.62 mi) east of the center of Trondheim, and follows the fjord east to Charlottenlund. The western part climbs small hilltops, often with a beautiful view of the Trondheimsfjord. The eastern part is almost flat.
There are several beaches (mainly rocky or with pebbles) along Ladestien, some of the most popular are Ringvebukta (not far from Ringve Museum and botanical garden) and Djupvika; the latter includes a large lawn and volleyball net. Swimming in the fjord is indeed refreshing, although a water temperature of 18 °C (64 °F) is fairly common during warm spells, and in warm summers water temperatures might reach 21 °C (70 °F).
In nice summer weather, a walk along the lush Ladestien with the calm waves from the fjord rolling gently against rocks and beaches might give associations to places much further south.
In mood for a walk? Well, try you hiking shoes at Ladestien!
