It's a good walk, uphill, there is a very nice view from there over the city, you see the river turn and the cathedral. Good spot for a sunset just make sure you get there early enough - I missed it by few minutes because it went down behind a mountain.

The fort itself is nice to see, however the attraction is the view of the city. Possibly the best in Trondheim. A storm blew in while we were up there, so we decided to eat lunch at the restaurant on the for grounds. The food was very good with large portions.

It's about 30-40 minutes hike up from downtown Trondheim, but once you reach up here, the view is splendid! The fortress is also quite a size and worth a small exploration. Overall, a lovely experience!

Old fort with great views of downtown Trondheim. Most of it was closed but there was a nice park and information signs.

Worth the steep climb for the view. Would have been helpful for the information boards to be in English too.

After crossing the bridge and walk straight up, you will see the fortress. The fortress area is not massive but it gives u a 360 view of the Trondheim city - my favourite spot. There is a restaurant and a free toilet in it. I enjoy it here.

The best place where you can meet the history of vikings and you can see the whole Trondheim city from Above.

Only a 15-minute walk from town centre. Offers a great view of Trondheim centre and the fjord. Good place for a picnic on a sunny day, playing, yoga, having a walk or any other outdoor activity. New Years Eve fireworks are popular as well.
