But the Leiv Eriksson story, short version, is worth a look. If you haven't read it before. So, a nice walk could be a brisk trek along the new seaside walk in Trondheim. Then a quick look at the statue (very short detour at the end), and finally a nice cup of coffee nearby, while reading up on Leiv Eriksson.

We were at the waterfront to see the "post boat" make it first stop in Trondheim during the summer. This was interesting and quite a celebration. It was worth the block or two walk to the statue and probably about same distance from Rockheim.

Leiv Eiriksson stands forlornly out on the quay in Trondheim. Even getting there from where the cruise ships dock means going out of your way. The statue itself is fine, and the reason for having it is good. It's just that the location is not very good. There isn't much else around it to look at.

There is no need at all to go to see it...is really far from the center and without anything sourranding!
