Both east and west of the city, close to it, we find large recreational areas. West of the city we find Bymarka, in English “The Woods (or Hills) of The City”. Bymarka has an area of 80 square kilometres with more than 200 km of walking tracks. The height of Bymarka goes from 200 metres to 565 metres above sea level. There are more than 10 lakes in Bymarka, and many bogs. Walking in Bymarka is wonderful recreation. There is a rich bird life, and there are healthy populations of many animals. One can collect mushrooms if one knows which are not poisonous and one can collect berries, especially blueberries. The blueberries of the north, growing from the ground, are delicious. In wintertime, skiing is very popular. There are some huts located different places in Bymarka where one can stop and drink cacao or coffee and have a waffle, open especially in the weekends.
So in Trondheim we may find pleasure in communicating with God by boat life, fishing, sun bathing and bathing, in other words by enjoying the love of God by having it. And we may find pleasure in communicating with God by walking and collecting in the hills, in other words by enjoying the love of God by taking it. What Paradise is only God knows. But either – or we in Trondheim have Paradise just outside the city. Be welcome to visit us!
