Europe’s official region of gastronomy
Talking about the Trønder: Trondheim-Trøndelag is the European Region of Gastronomy (ERG) in 2022. ERG is by no means a tribute solely to Michelin-starred restaurants, white tablecloths and tall glasses – although this is part of the overall picture. ERG is rather a tribute to the farmers, fishermen and breeders who conjure up the most delicious produce with tender love and care for the Trøndelag chefs’ society, which knows how to utilise world-class local produce. Trøndelag is one large food region, and every nook and cranny of it offers unique taste experiences.
1,000 years and 1,000 stories
But Trøndelag is not just a food region. Trøndelag has played an important role in history, and some refer to the region the historical cradle of Norway. Stiklestad, Nidaros Cathedral and the UNESCO World Heritage site Røros are all filled with stories of historical events from Trøndelag that played a part in shaping Norway. You can immerse yourself in history from the Viking Age, the Middle Ages and up to the present day. Discover historical Trøndelag and experience a piece of Norwegian history.
