Alesund is considered the most beautiful city in Norway and we agree with this statement. The city, like all the other cities in Norway, was made of wood until 1904 when it burned down. In the next three years, it was rebuilt in the Art Nouveau style.

Observation deck on Mount Aksla (Fjellstua Viewpoint) is considered the main attraction of Ålesund. You can reach the top from the city park.

There you will find a cafe with an observation deck. Unfortunately the cafe is only open from 11 in the morning, although the sometimes it's open a little earlier. If you go up about 9 am, you can watch how big ships come to port.

We climbed two mountains that are seen in this photo - Sukkertoppen and Storhornet. If you are going to spend more than one day in Ålesund, the plan these trips.

We were incredibly lucky with the weather. All three days while we were in Alesund the temperature rose to 25 degrees. At the same time there was virtually no wind, so we managed to make excellent photos that show why the city is considered the most beautiful in the country.

150-year-old lighthouse, which is visible on many of the photos is also a room of Brosundet Hotel (http://www.brosundet.no/en/the-hotel/molja-lighthouse). On the next photo you can see "hotel" visitors.

We did not visit, but it may be interesting to you - three kilometers to the west of Ålesund is the Atlantic Park, one of the largest aquariums in Scandinavia.

Getting there: Ålesund has its own airport where fly KLM, WizzAir, SAS, airBaltic and Norwegian. From the airport to the city the only "cheap" option is the bus FlyBuss Vigra (schedule). Return ticket costs 120 kroner ($15). The nearest railway station is Åndalsnes, then by bus to Ålesund.
