Alesund Art Nouveau City Walk
Ålesund is the largest town on the northwest coast of Norway. Still, the town center is relatively small and easy to cover by foot. The downtown was built on 2 islands close to the ocean with the backdrop of impressive mountain peaks. In the past, it was primarily made from wood, and the whole town was destroyed by fire in 1904, being rebuilt shortly in stone, brick and mortar. As the reconstruction took place between 1904 and 1907, its architecture reflected the characteristics of that period and was done in Jugendstil or Art Nouveau. The guide will take you around the town and lift the veil of the local history, telling you stories from the ancient ages to the modern days and answering your questions. You will also learn about the importance of fisheries in Norway's biggest fish export port.
Highlights: Ålesund, Jugendstil, Art Nouveau, fish port.
