A lively seaport renowned for its high concentration of Art Nouveau buildings, Alesund stretches over seven islands and features a compact city center almost entirely surrounded by water. Badly damaged by a devastating fire in the winter of 1904, the city managed to rebuild itself with the help of international aid and financial gifts from Keiser Wilhelm of Germany, who counted Alesund among his favorite vacation spots. Although it attracts international tourists with its architecture and natural scenery, the city retains much of its traditional port-city atmosphere and boasts one of the most modern fishing fleets in Europe. To personalize your trip to Alesund, create itinerary details specific to you using our Norway day trip tool.
