Travel Tips for visiting Alesund

Visit Alesund, the capital of Art Nouveau in Norway.

The fact that Alesund has so many Art Nouveau buildings is not due to chance but to a devastating fire in 1904, which took away 
all the wooden houses in the city center.

The city was then rebuilt in the Art Nouveau style, which was very popular at the time. 

Climbing Fjellstua Hill

Climbing to the top of Fjellstua Hill is a must when visiting Alesund. 
It is indeed a hill overlooking the city, from where you have a magnificent view of Alesund and its surroundings.

You will love this place but first you will have to climb 418 steps to get there, but it's well worth it! It is simply breathtaking.
