Kanalen – the Canal – at the railway station. The Canal runs from Ila eastwards to Nidelva. On the island outside the Canal you'll find essentially the railway station and a large part of the Trondheim harbor. Before the 1850s the wharf warehouses to the left stood on the fjord shore. A breakwater was then built outside the whole long row of wharfs, forming the present canal. Later on the sea outside the breakwater was filled in, forming the present island, a process that still continues.
