Tour secret rooms at Nidaros Cathedral
Trondheim’s most popular attraction, Nidaros Cathedral is built on the site of St Olaf’s grave and is the world’s northernmost medieval cathedral. A grand tribute to Norway’s treasured patron saint, the cathedral was built from 1070 onwards, but fell into disrepair during the Middle Ages. Since 1869, it has been painstakingly restored, although craftsmen can still be seen working in the cathedral today. As legend says, when the building is completely finished, a mudslide will hit the city and the cathedral will disappear into the fjord. Now visitors can marvel at its stained-glass windows and stone sculptures or join a guided tour to the cathedral’s secret rooms. During the summer don’t miss climbing the 172 narrow steps up the tower for the best view of Trondheim’s pretty city centre.
