Travel guide to Alesund
Alesund from the hill
Alesund from the hill
When Ålesund was destroyed by fire in the early years of the 20th century did anybody realise that an art nouveau town near the fjords would have such a draw a hundred years later? Possibly they guessed because of course the rebuilding was done in the latest style, largely financed by international aid, including a major contribution from Kaiser William II, the German emperor who used to enjoy holidays there. The north bound Hurtigrute [Coastal Voyage] spends most of a day going up fjords from Ålesund to Geiranger and back - or the return can be by bus. Otherwise a triangular bus trip or drive in either direction to Geiranger and Åndalsnes, taking in the eagles Highway and the Trollsnigge Pass provides a terrific day.
Molde can be reached by car ferry or a bus trip can be taken to the most southerly bird rock at Runde.
Ålesund makes a terrific centre for exploration. [edit text]  [editors]
