The cobbled streets of Trondheim’s Bakklandet neighborhood are a throwback to a city long forgotten. Originally built in the 17th century to house traders and fishermen, the wooden buildings today play host to commerce of a different kind: coffee shops, restaurants, boutiques, and some of the city’s most desirable apartments. Sip a cappuccino at one of the handful of sidewalk cafés, or slip between buildings to discover a perfect view of the Nidelva river. The area is hugely popular with walkers and cyclists, and curious minds will be drawn to the huddle of people at the Trampe bicycle lift, believed to be the only such device in the world.
