Why Travel to Alesund

As the evening sun leaves the horizon, Alesund appears in all its beauty. Street lights and warm lighting in the houses softly reflect from the water, creating that famous charming Norwegian atmosphere. Hidden between Norway's breathtaking fjords, Alesund, the city of colorful houses, is no fewer winsome during the day. Norwegian people have chosen it as the most beautiful town in Norway and call it the Adventure Capital of the Fjords. The image of the several islands placed around Alesund with the spectacular Sunnmore Mountains as a background is especially fabulous as well.

The town itself is pretty young because of the tragic story which happened at the beginning of the 20th century. A destroying fire erupted on the streets of Alesund, 16 hours later the whole city center was burned to the ground with only 230 houses left, leaving literally thousands of people homeless. In three years, the town was completely rebuilt with an exceptional contribution of its citizens.

Now Alesund is famous for its Art Nouveau architecture and is a member of the "Reseau Art Nouveau Network", a European network of Art Nouveau cities. Make sure to include an Alesund itinerary to your bucket list of Scandinavia tours and take advantage of seeing its atmospheric buildings and breathtaking landscapes.

In addition, make sure to have a proper Alesund tour and don't miss the chance to see this charming place from a completely different perspective, including Norway fjord boat tours that are available all year to your travel plans.
