Candlelight Walk

It is now dark by 4 pm, and it will keep getting darker. Pam takes the kids to the Tyholt Tower for dinner, and they walk carrying enclosed candles. Every window in every building is illuminated, either with candles or with the room lights, the Norwegian way to stave off the darkness.

From the perspective of the rotating restaurant 47 meters above ground level, Trondheim glitters like a blanket of diamonds. The winter may be long and dark, but it sparkles like magic.

  1. Here are the sombre facts about daylight (twilight) in Trondheim these days. Sunrise at 8:11 AM, sunset at 3:51 pm
    Tomorrow will be 6 minutes shorter.
    It's definitely reflector-vest season.
