Nice place. Especially in nice weather, it is great at Munkholmen. A short boat trip from the center of Trondheim. Bring a packed lunch and enjoy the day. Nice with a bath in Trondheimsfjorden. The building is worth a tour where one can hear about the story and what this was used for.

We took the 5.00pm boat and asked specifically if we could see everything on the island without having to pay extra as we have learnt this is a common theme in Norway. We were assured we could walk round everything. However ....once there you can only go inside the main building with a guide which cost 50Kr each making the whole trip 120Kr each for not a lot. The island is small with only a cafe to visit without the guide. There is no tourist information explaining the history.....and also the cafe shut at 5.45pm leaving us to stand in the cold and the wind waiting for the return boat at 6.10pm.

Money for nothing!!

We only had a few hours but managed to squeeze in this little trip (ferry every hour), which was lovely. Good weather, great views from the boat and the island, nice local food. Enjoyed it!

So, this was a complete waste of time. Had read the reviews, and knew we had missed the only guided tour today, but thought we'd go and explore a little anyways. That was a mistake.

A short and rocky 15 min boat ride to the island, a short break in the cafe for mediocre coffee, and a good pastry (they had hot dogs and other things). You can't enter any of the few buildings unless you have a guided tour, and it took us max 20 mins to walk round the island. We basically waited on the next return boat.

There is one plaque of information that gives some brief info on the island and what it has been used for, but that's it.

Maybe the guided tour would help, but this is not a huge island, and there's nothing to do.

Its beautiful and definitely one thing you must to do in Trondheim. You can't go there the whole year so you must to check in their web site when you can go. I tried to go in march and was not possible.
Theres a nice kaffe.
