THE CHRISTMAS MARKET
The Christmas Market in Trondheim takes place at the market square in December every year. Here you will find an exciting market with quality crafts, Christmas food and trees. Experience concerts, theatre and horse and sleigh rides. And in the lavvo you can enjoy local food and beverage by the fire, while listening to troubadours and folk tales.
Experience the beautiful blue hour, “den blå timen”. It gives everything outdoors a magical blue glow. Combined with the decorated stalls and thousands of small lights, it is like stepping into a Norwegian fairy tale.
The Christmas Market was held for the first time in 2003, with only 5 stalls. Today, the market consists of over 80 exhibitors and 130 cultural events.
Welcome to a market where you will find the true Christmas spirit, entertainment and gifts you can not find in ordinary shops.
