On your way to Ringve Museum today, you will pass through Trondheim's streets and stop at the Nidaros Cathedral for a visit inside. A splendid Gothic structure dating back to the 12th century, this impressive church is built over the grave of St Olaf and boasts gorgeous stained-glass windows.
Continue to the Ringve Museum, Norway's only specialized museum for musical instruments. It is situated on a hill overlooking the fjord, and is surrounded by botanical gardens with beautiful old trees and plants. The manor house, built in the 1860s, with its rare interiors, is a lovely setting for part of the collection. In another building you will find fine treasures from the European history of music, and 2,000 exotic instruments from all over the world. The guides at the museum are music students and offer demonstrations of some of the instruments on display.
There will be time for shopping in the museum shop and a walk in the beautiful gardens before you return to the city. The motor coach will stop at a viewpoint so you can enjoy the panorama of Trondheim and take some photos.
Inside church visit(s) may not be possible if religious services are being held.
