Destination

Trondheim is the main hub of the region and reputed to be the town in Norway with the most restaurants and cafes per person. You will find the best shopping, cafés, cozy streets with an intimate atmosphere, culture and sporting events. A large city by Norwegian standards, Trondheim has still managed to preserve the charm and intimacy of a small town. The historic city offers battlefields, old churches and castles, rock carvings and burial mounds all witness the presence of earlier inhabitants, dating back to the Viking era and beyond.

Trondheim is known as one of the typical wooden cities of Europe with many special wooden buildings built as far back as the 1700s. The old wooden buildings, originally workers' houses, have now been restored and converted into flats, shops and restaurants.

Trondheim has a strong position as the centre of trade for central Norway. NTNU (the Norwegian University of Science and Technology), Trondheim's internationally renowned university, and the city's many research communities ensure that it is a city of innovation and development of science, business and industry ventures.

The hotel is located by the harbour in central Trondheim and is one of Scandinavia’s largest convention hotels.
