Activities in Trondheim
Flakk Camping is located only 11 km from the city of Trondheim. Trondheim offers a variety of activities, attractions and cultural experiences for everyone. It takes only 15 minutes to drive into the city centre and about 20 minutes by bus (see timetable for route 75 and 450, busstop Flakkråa, at www.atb.no). If you prefer to ride your bike, you should expect to spend about 30-40 minutes each way (road shared with cars).
Trondheim is Norway’s third largest city with about 200,000 inhabitants. Founded by the Viking King Olav Tryggvason in the year 997, the city still offers many traces of having been both a Viking and medieval town. If you are interested in history you will especially enjoy the Nidaros Cathedral and the Archbishop’s Palace.
Pirbadet at Brattøra is a very popular family activity, frequently visited both by city dwellers with children and by tourists. Pirbadet is in fact Norway’s largest indoor waterpark, and from Flakk Camping you reach Pirbadet in approximately 15 minutes. Brattøra is also home to the popular museum Rockheim, which is Norway’s national museum of popular music.
If the weather is sunny, we recommend a boat ride to the small island of Munkholmen, if possible with a stop at Ravnkloa Fish Hall. Munkholmen is located in the Trondheim Fjord, and is a popular destination during the summer. Here you can go swimming, sunbathing or take a tour in the old fortress. A café and restaurant is also located on the island. During summer, the passenger ferry between Ravnkloa and Munkholmen runs every hour.
On Lerkedal Stadium Trondheim’s favourite football team, Rosenborg, plays their home games. Check the team’s website for game data, team listings, club information and history.
Trondheim the timber city
Trondheim is known for its wooden buildings and especially the old storehouse buildings located on the river bend of Nidelva are worth a visit. In addition, the wooden houses at Bakklandet, with its many cafés, is a cosy area for a stroll. Stiftsgården, located near the marked square (Torget) is the royal residence in Trondheim. Stiftsgården is among Scandinavia’s largest wooden palaces, finished in 1778, built in a style in transition between rococo and classicism.
