Byåsen


Byåsen

Byåsen is a district in the city of Trondheim, Norway, situated to the west of the city centre. This is mainly a residential area, with 32 136 residents as of January 1 2003. The name Byåsen can be translated into "City Hill", which describes its elevated position, overlooking the rest of Trondheim. Byåsen is the only larger district in Trondheim that have solid rock underground. A long time ago the sea level was half-way up Byåsen, and a clear mark of this can be seen from the city. This is most easily spotted from Kristiansten Fortress on the eastern part of the city.

As a consequence of its position above the rest of the city (from 100-300 m above sea level) there is more snow on Byåsen during the winter than in lower parts of Trondheim. Bymarka, located on the southern and western part of Byåsen, is a large recreational area with forest and lakes, which is very popular for cross country skiing in the winter season. The weather conditions and the extensive network of cross country tracks in this area helped Granåsen (an outdoor winter sporting arena situated at the south end of Bymarka) in hosting the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in 1997. Trondheim Golfklubb (a golf course) is also based on Byåsen, although these same weather conditions complicate matters and shortens the season. There is, however, an 18-hole golf course at the agricultural lowland area Byneset, located just west of Bymarka.

The tram line Gråkallbanen connects Byåsen to the city centre along with a number of bus routes (8, 5, 9, 19) as well as night time services by bus and tram in the weekends.
