Great historical place at Tautra where you also can hire a room, buy food or their own brewed beer. It is behind Klostergården

Beside the water, on a remote island, at the edge of a peninsula, in a back corner of Trondheimfjord are the stone ruins of an old cloister built back in the 1200s. What impresses me about a huge, medieval structure like this, besides the engineering, is the sheer zeal and strength of will it took to build such a structure way out here on a cold, windy, rocky island. When one stands among the massive stone outline easily two meters thick and passes through a huge, Roman arch door on the highest remaining wall, one can readily imagine the burly, construction of the former structure, weathering the centuries.

The site and the island are quite scenic in the warm season, and there are plenty of beches and tables scattered around for relaxing and picnicking. There is a small gift store and a full service cafe adjacent to the ruins.

Is it for kids? The ruins would be interesting for about 5 minutes and there would be a temptation to climb on them (something that is forbidden), but, there are grassy fields and a rocky beach, so plan accordingly.

I recommend a visit out to Tautra if you have time the time for a day excursion out from Trondheim. It is about a 2 hour drive at a leisurely pace and you'll pass at least 3 other stop-worthy sights along the line of march (Steinvikholmen, Pick Up Cafe, and Frostatinget) so it is a diverting, low energy day trip for anyone that digs a little history. Tautra is also a bird sanctuary if you are a birder, with many nice local seabird sites.

Unfortunately, at the moment there is some scaffolding in place. You can walk on stilts on the grounds of the pub in front of it. Great place for hiking!
