History

Levanger can probably be traced back to the Iron Age, and with certainty, back to the Viking Age. Alvshaugen is a large burial mound located in the middle of the cemetery at Alstadhaug Church. The burial mound has been dated to 300-600 CE. It is about 40 metres in diameter, and about 5 to 6 metres tall. The name Levanger is listed in Gunnlaugs saga ormstungu. The historic town site was located in a place somewhat different from the current town center, probably in relation to Halsstein bygdeborg. In the Middle Ages, area now part of the municipality of Levanger was part of the county of Skeyna in the traditional district of Innherred. The county was ruled by earls who reside at manor of Geite, situated on a hill nearby present town. The county was divided into six parishes: Ekne, Alstadhaug, Levanger, Frol, Yttery, and Leksvik. County Church was located in Alstadhaug, which also contains fylking, while Levanger was the main port and market town. Not much is known about the earls of Skeyna, as few documents still exist that document their existence. The Reformation and Danish occupation of Norway in 1537 caused Norwegian nobility to disintegrate, and the last earl was most likely executed during the Reformation. Danish rulers unite Skeyna with four other counties in Innherred, creating the county of Steinvikholm. Later, Levanger area was part of Trondhjems amt which was later divided into Nordre Trondhjems amt. It was later renamed Nord-Trndelag fylke. On 1 January 2018, municipality switched from Old Nord-Trndelag county to new Trndelag county.

Levanger train station

One of the most distinctive buildings in all of Trndelag, let alone Levanger, this beautiful station building is the first thing you see when arriving on train. It make terrific first impression! Open alongside the station itself in 1902, station building was designed by prominent Norwegian architect Paul Due. After returning to Norway from many years working in American cities, Due designed several notable railway stations. Eye-catching stations at Hamar and Lillehammer are among his best work. Inside is a little disappointing, however! The waiting room is cold and unwelcoming, and there isn't shop or any other services aside from two automated ticket machines. There are, however, clean restrooms, which are very useful on day trip! The lack of services doesn't really matter, however, as the town centre is right there behind the building.

Levanger waterfront paths

The small town is located on Trondheimsfjord, same body of water that touches Trondheim city centre. Living in the city, it is sometimes easy to forget that the fjord is one of Norway's biggest. The town is part of a traditional region known as Innherred. While there is no administrative region here anymore, there is a tourist-facing organisation called Visit Innherred. This means that when looking through local tourist information brochure you are constantly trying to figure out if the museum is in Levanger or another town 50km away. This obsession with boundary-drawing is one of the most frustrating things about the Norwegian tourism industry! Innherred doesnt mean anything to international visitor. When visiting Levanger for day, who wants to see pages of museums in Innherred and then have to spend ages figuring out which ones are near Levanger?
