Trondheim, or Nidaros, is a town in the middle of Norway. The population of this beloved local remainder of paradise is 150.000. The university dominates the town, largely due to its 20.000 students and the unknown amount of employees and connected businesses.

Trondheim was, contrary to common belief, not so much a center for vikings, as the religious center of northern Europe in the Middle Ages and a vital hub for North-Atlantic trade, thus giving the town plentiful of characteristic mansions and harbour houses. The inhabitants like to call their town the historical, the religious and (by all means) the technology capital of Norway. The town celebrated its 1000-years anniversary in 1997.
