The palace was built in 1774-1778 as a privat residence for Cecilie Christine Schøller when the city flourished at the end of thr 18th century, but was taken over by the state. The palace is Scandinavia`s largest wooden building, covering 4000m2 of floor space in 140 rooms. Many magnificant original chambers have been preserved. Guided tours round the official chambers also include the royal interiors from 19th and 20th centuries, given a glimpse of festivities held during Royal visites and the coronation and blessing cermonies in Trondheim during the last two centuries.

The building has been the property of the government since 1800, and has been used in connection with coronations and other royal ceremonies. Stiftsgården is the official residence of the King and Queen when they are visiting Trondheim. Guided tours are available in the summer when there are no royal visitors. Stiftsgården may only be viewed in connection with guided tours.
