    AKRON Gallery and Bakklandet


    AKRON Gallery is a small gallery located on Øvre Bakklandet. The gallery’s goal is mainly to promote local artists, but also from the rest of Norway and the world.

    Bakklandet is a small district in Trondheim, on the east side of Nidelva between the Bakke bridge and the Elgeseter bridge. The district was earlier Trondheim’s first suburb and didn’t become a part of Trondheim until 1846. In the 1960s Bakklandet was at risk of being demolished because of planning of a new road to the city center. Many, including students, protested and these plans were abandoned. In the 70s, the district was restored and Bakklandet is known today for its picturesque wooden buildings, as well as different café’s, restaurants, and bars. It is also one of the most visited parts of the city by tourists.
