"Alesund" Norway Things to Do Tip by munki

Norway Things to Do: 771 reviews and 1,349 photos


Alesund is famous for the fire in 1904 that burned all the town centres houses.
The town was rebuilt in an Art Nouveau style in just three years.
The best place to observe the beautiful building facades is Kongens Gate.
Lots of shops are concentrated along this commercial pedestrian street.
Not far from Kongens Gate is the town park where you can take a path with lots of steps to the top of Fjellsua to enjoy a fantastic panoramic view of the city and near islands.
