  Port Map

Trondheim is a port town on the central Norwegian coast, located on a fjord at the mouth of River Nid. This was the first Norwegian capital, founded 1,000 years ago under the name Nidaros.

Trondheim (Norway) cruise port

Norway's monarchs are still crowned in the 12th century Nidaros Cathedral - Scandinavia's biggest medieval building and one of Europe's foremost Gothic monuments. The town is famous for its numerous wooden buildings and historic landmarks, mostly on an island between fjord and river, and has a lovely open-air folk-culture museum. Visit the famous museum of musical instruments in Ringve or Stiftsgarden Palace.

The town was established in 997 AD by Viking King Olaf I Tryggvasson as the settlement of an island on River Nidelv was easy to defend. The King, who attempted to unite Norway, later chose the town for his residence Nidarnes. In 1152 Trondheim became an Archbishopric and bloomed into a spiritual center until Reformation.

In 2018, the cruise port had scheduled 93 ship calls with around 165,000 passengers. Port's ever largest cruise ship so far is MSC Meraviglia (max passenger 5400, crew 1400, length 315 m) that docked on May 17, 2018. Port expansion projects include enlarging the ISPS zone's bus parking area and building a new bollard (short post for mooring lines).

In 2019, the port had booked 88 cruise ship berthings with estimated ~160,000 passengers. For 2020 were scheduled 100 ship calls.
