I had no idea that Trondheim was an important location in WW2. The Nazi's built a bunker that could hold multiple U-boats at once for refueling and reloading torpedoes. They were kept safe here by the anti-aircraft guns on Munkholm Island. The Allies bombed this...More

The bunkers are basically just sub entrances on water side with a commercial building above. Very little history to be seen. I say them because I was walking by to Ladestien, otherwise I would have been totally unhappy with the walk.

On our way to Ladestien hiking trail we past this ... building. It hurts your eyes. How ugly can something be I wonder. If I had lived back then I would have encouraged local authorities to have put more effort (i.e. more dynamite) into tearing...More

Germany occupied Norway during the Second World War and used Trondheim as a base for their submarines. From here the submarines attacked the Murmansk convoys. The massive concrete pens protected the submarines from Allied bombing. At the seaside entrance to the pens is a U-boat...More

I am one of those people that is sincerely awed by the many layers of history that Trondheim and Trondelag has (like, viking sites, a 1000 year old cathedral, medieval castle ruins, 17th century fortress, scores of 18th and 19th century structures and establishments still...More

Dora is very very very very very big. Some "Hitler" dude had it built, what a dork. Before he had his guys come and mess everything up big time, there was a rather nice beach here, can you believe that? No, of course you can`t,...More

A lot of history here. I was a little disappointed that you can't really see inside but the outside is impressive enough.

The bunkers are massive, and impressive. Even when you look on a map, though, they are not the easiest to find. They are in the midst of a working dock and an increasingly trendy neighborhood. It would have been nice to have more information --...More

This massive WW2 submarine dock bunker is an impressive view from the outside, but it's mostly closed off to the public. If you're not particularly interested in WW2 or submarines you might not find it very exciting. Today the bunker houses archives, server centres, storage...More
