Introduction

Trondheim is the oldest city in Norway, founded in 997 by Viking King Olav Tryggvason. Moreover, at that time it wasn't very important, because the Viking age was already ending. In the Middle Ages Trondheim was the most important trade city of Scandinavia and a leading religious center. The Dom (the only cathedral in Norway) reminds of that time. Not only the historic town itself, but also the rugged terrain and fjord coast make Trondheim a popular destination for a city break.

Population

The city has a population of officially 170,000. This does not include the approximately 20,000 students.

Location

Trondheim is centrally located in Norway, where the Nidelva River flows into the Trondheim Fjord. Because of this location, the city is well protected from sea breezes. Furthermore, winters are (given the northern location) relatively mild.

Economy

Trondheim lost its position as an important port long ago. Nowadays high-tech, research and development are the most important industries for the local economy. The city has a prominent university of engineering and natural sciences and there are some well-established research institutes. Furthermore, the Norwegian air force has its training center there.

Airport

The airport of Trondheim is located 35 kilometers north of the city center. Trondheim Airport Værnes is easily accessible by rental car via highway E6. The way to the airport is clearly signposted.

Public Transport

Trondheim has excellent public buses. During the day they run very frequently. Furthermore, on weekends there is a night service; these buses leave from Olav Tryggvasons Street, near the entertainment district. There is a tram line (Gråkallbanen) from St. Olavs street to the recreational area Lian in the forests southwest of Trondheim.

Traffic and Parking

Except for the historical center, you can easily visit Trondheim's sights by rental car. You can park in the streets in the center, but usually it's cheaper to park in a parking garage. Signs indicate where there are free parking spaces. There are eight municipal garages, but the parking service collaborates with some hotels, this means that you can also park your rental car in some hotel parking garages.

Hotels

Trondheim has a good range of accommodations in all categories. Popular hotels are located near Erkebispegården. In summer it is advisable to book your hotel room in advance. Norwegians love the outdoors and therefore it is allowed to camp in the wild anywhere, as long as you are at least 300 meters away from any buildings. Furthermore, in summer there are some official campsites near Trondheim.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
