Following a three-year, nearly $150 million top-to-toe renovation, the city’s grande dame is ready for the next generation of regulars.
Since 1897, the Britannia has served as the hub of Trondheim, a place where everyone from local politicians to visiting royalty, international stars, and Arctic explorers, have gathered to meet, share stories, and enjoy elegant hospitality. Following a three-year, nearly $150 million top-to-toe renovation, the fjord-side city’s grande dame was relaunched in 2019, ready for the next generation of regulars. Handpicked furnishings and textiles, fine linens, and marble bathrooms adorn the bright guest rooms, which include a number of elevated suites. The six on-site restaurants and bars range from the majestic Palm Court for an unforgettable breakfast spread, to a wine bar that draws from a several thousand bottle-strong cellar, and modern fine dining from Bocuse D’Or-awarded chef, Christopher Davidsen. A signature gym, a spa with an indoor pool, a magical ballroom, and unparalleled service further help the Britannia define Norwegian hospitality for the next century—and beyond.
