Fodor's Review

Now a swimming and recreation area, Munkholmen (meaning Monk's Islet) was Trondheim's execution grounds in ancient times. In the 11th century, Benedictine monks built a monastery here that was likely one of the first in Scandinavia. In 1658 the monastery was converted into a prison and fort and, later, a customs house. Boats to Munkolmen depart from the Ravnkloa fish market.
