Alesund has got a terrible history: in the night on 23rd January 1904 the town centre buried by a great fire, more than 800 houses were destroyed, and more than 10000 people were left homeless. The town centre had been rebuilt by 1907 thanks his inhabitants and the German Kaiser. A new town rose in the distinctive Art Nouveau style with myriad turrets, spires and beautiful ornamentation.
