The List is as excited for the opening of our annual Christmas Market, julemarkedet in Trondheim as a child counting down the days to Christmas. It's a sensory experience with the perfect amount of nostalgia mixed with the best of holiday offers, full of local producers and great atmosphere, to meet your socialising needs. All brought to you by Midtbyen Management. Trondheim Christmas Market kicks off a year of food and beverage delights as European Region of Gastronomy 2022.
We've gathered a Santa’s list of reasons for you to visit (more than once!):
1. The atmosphere
Nothing puts you in the Christmas spirit like the smell of roasted almonds and wood-burning fires.
2. The Christmas Lavvo
An enormous tent located in the town square including 500 seats with beverage service, offering music from local troubadours. Take a break from the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping, or meet up with friends for a cozy break. Here you can even enjoy a reindeer burger! (Don’t tell Rudolph!)
3. Ferris Wheel
To celebrate 19 years of ‘julemarkedet’ and reawakening of society, take an unforgettable ride on the Christmas Market Ferris Wheel this year. You can’t miss it!
4. Horse-drawn Carriage
Have your own disney experience with a horse-drawn carriage ride around the city centre! Perfect for kids.
5. Trondheim’s Tallest Christmas tree
In the heart of the market you will find the city’s tallest Christmas tree. It’s almost too big to seem real!
6. Local food
You can always find the best of locally produced food at the Christmas market. Providers from all over the region come to sell their finest products. Especially as an international you can find foods you haven't even heard of. Perfect gifts for family and friends.
Locate some hand-crafted products from small-scale businesses that travel to the city exclusively for the Christmas market. Here you can find items from producers that are only here for the weeks of the year. It’s a great way to give a statement-gift.
