Overview

Due to its name, Hell Station has become a tourist attraction. The station's freight building still bears the old sign saying Hell Gods-Expedition. In Norwegian, Gods-Expedition (archaic) or godsekspedisjon (modern) means freight service or cargo handling.[5] This sign is a popular photo opportunity for foreign tourists, and especially in the summer months, it is not unusual that foreigners, when discovering the sign, evacuate the train in order to get a photo. Whilst associated with the religious concept Hell by English-speakers, the name Hell derives from Old Norse hellir, which means cave. The Norwegian equivalent to English hell is hel or, more commonly, helvete (compare with Old English hellewīte).

This is an interesting to stop by as it's a train station and it's called Hell. So, we went to Hell and came back alive.

This station is famous because of its name which in norwegian means luck. If you come to Trondheim airport you could walk here in 15 minutes.

Tiny tiny rail station with just a waiting room and not really a platform, tickets bought ahead online so all we needed was our e-tickets. Train conductor was very helpful and had a proper train conductor moustache 😆 what more could you want!

Went for a photoshoot with an exchange student from Canada. Obviously for the signs at the trainstation. Just a short walk from the airport or the airport hotels.

We usually stop by hell station for a couple of pictures if we pick up or bring people to Værnes airport. Most people find it fun to be pictured underneath the stations name board "HELL" or underneathe the "GODSEXPEDITION HELL" (freight delivery Hell) sign.
