Family travel experience

Trondheim will always be my second home, but even if i wasn't biased i would still recommend this lovely place! The cozy yet lively town provides you with both a nice stroll through beautiful streets with houses coloured in all the rainbows colors. But if you want the night life, there is certainly no problem with that either! Trondheim is beautiful, scenery, food, hikes.. Just lovely!

Is Trondheim safe for women?

The city is generally safe, but every now and then there are people who make me feel unsafe, like in any other town. I would recommend being together with others at night, just in case. It is usually a very pleasant city!
