The old Town bridge , Gamle Bybro, is the entrance to Bakklandet, the old Town and former centrum in Trondheim. A splendid place to view and make photos!

By stopping for a photo (local legend has it) you will have good luck! And it is an excellent place to do just that.

If you are going to look around the Bakklandet neighborhood, then you should walk over the bridge! Eat dinner at nearby Bakklandet Skydstation, and drink beers dockside (weather permitting) right below the bridge at Den Gode Nabo ("The Good Neighbor" Pub).

Beautifull bridge with postcard-views of the houses by the river, specially if the weather is nice, like we had.

Nice little bridge at the centre of most of the tourist attractions in Trondheim City Centre. Picture square location. Beware of all the bicycles that rushing their way around, you are expected to give way to them
