OK, it's not Tower Bridge, but it's a cute swinging bridge, and I was lucky enough to see it in action. Free to go and see it, and you can get some nice photos.

It requires some walking from the center (15 min), but it's totally worth it. Besides the bridge, you have a nice marina nearby, and the promenade along the coast is a must!

It's a nice place to wander about, but don't go here just to see the bridge, it is kinda boring if you're some kind of bridge entusiast maybe?

The bridge connects the western and eastern parts of Trondheim in a walking/bicycle path along the entire seafront. Scenic views all directions from the bridge, and also a restaurant located nearby.

Skansen Svingbru opened at the end of 2014, and made a shortcut from ILA to Brattøra (two places in Trondheim). It is like walking in a beautiful park alongside the seashore.The view of Trondheim harbor with the old fortress Munkholmen is worth to see.
