The Wharves

Show map

The oldest of the wharves along the River Nidelva date back to the 18th century; nevertheless, they still give the impression of the waterfront as it was long before then. The wharves remind us of the importance of Trondheim as a merchant city.
The people of Trondheim have always seen the special quality of the wharves, so they are still proudly standing today, having not only survived the Swedes, but also plans in the 1930s to tear them down and replace them with modern blocks in the functionalist style. 
On the seafront, towards the canal, many of the wharves were built more recently, in the 19th and 20th centuries. Housing shops, offices, restaurants and cafes, they still hold a special charm.
