Stiftsgården - the Royal Residence in Trondheim

Share

Stiftsgården was built in 1774-1778 as a residence for Cecilie Christine Schøller. It is Scandinavia's largest wooden building, covering 4000 m2 of floor space in 140 rooms. The building has been the property of the government since 1800, and has been used in connection with coronations and other royal ceremonies. Stiftsgården is the official residence of the King and Queen when they are visiting Trondheim. Guided tours are available in the summer when there are no royal visitors. Stiftsgården may only be viewed in connection with guided tours.
