Best of Central Norway Guide

Print this guide 
Central Norway
The central Norwegian area of Trondelag has its ideological capital in Trondheim, founded by Viking king Olaf Tryggvason in the 10th century and the seat of Norway's power until the 13th. Today, it's still the country's third-largest city, a university town with a rich culture. Trondelag's western offshore islands of Hitra and Froya are popular for outdoor adventures like camping, hiking, biking, snorkeling and scuba diving. They are also one of the world's best spots for deep sea fishing.

Work began in 1070, and the building was completed in about 1300. After being damaged by fire, it lay largely in ruins for several hundred years. In 1869 extensive restorations were begun, and a century later the cathedral was again restored to its original grandeur. less

Since the museum's opening in 2010 there has been a steady stream of visitors eager to learn about norwegian music and its history. Music is a source of enjoyment. It creates a sense of belonging and offers new experiences. But it is also a vital source of knowledge of ourselves and our cultural history. Behind the scenes, Rockheim's staff is engaged in managing and researching Norway's pop and rock music, and in making it accessible to the public. The visit to Rockheim begins in the spectacular "Top Box". From the main exhibit on the 6th floor you proceed down floor by floor. The music and stories are communicated by means of interactive exhibit technology and objects from the museum's collections. You are welcomed by Rockheim's guides, who will be your hosts and will answer your questions about the exhibits. less
