I live in Trondheim and yes it is excpensive, and yes norwegians make a lot of money. I guess (income/things you need to bye) living here cost as much as other places. Groceries are cheap, so are electricity and clothes. But eating out is really expencive to most norwegians and that is also transport with bus (and the taxi prizes are crazy high!) and renting /buying a home.

Compared to the salary, Norway is one of the cheapest places to live in. You can easily find a tastefull chinese restaurant eating for 130kr

Ivar is WAY off on his income numbers here!
#ivar on Aug 08, 2013 :
Why work here, unless you are unqualified? The problem is that everybody gets 100 000USD a year whether you are a bus driver, banker, professor. Thats why a
hamburger cost 20USD.
#Svetlana on May 29, 2012 :
wow so expensive... frankly speaking while reading these prices I was hoping that to the end of the list I will see the salary around 7-8.000 euro net. prices are crazy high.
#Jovi on Apr 23, 2012 :
Worked here two weeks. Too expensive , my allowance is not enough to cover the cost. From Sweden...
#OE on Jan 14, 2012 :
Prices are somewhat higher than indicated here, due to inflation/new taxtes/growth. Yes, Trondheim is one of the most expensive places in the world. Crazy, but true. E.g. I paid USD 30 for 4 hours of parking in the street the other day; these fees will go up 15% later this year. And the "cheap restaurants" mentioned (about 200 NOK a head) are very low quality. With drinks, it is hard not to spend between 400-500 a head, even in mediocre places.
#Alexander on Jan 10, 2012 :
Why does this person eat that much in restaurants if it is that expensive? Why not go to the closest grocery and buy some dinner?
