Aalesund Mini Guide

Why do People go to Alesund?
Alesund is a large city in Western Norway and gateway to a region of stunning views and endlessly deep fjords. Completely destroyed by fire at the start of the 20th century, a Europe-wide fundraising effort enabled the city to rebuild and it did so in an art nouveau style for which the city is still famous today. The city is built on a small archipelago and the old town is completely surrounded by water. There are sights of many kinds to tempt tourists and it’s possible to spend a week there without seeing all the attractions.

How do I get to Alesund?
On the island of Vigra, just to the north of the city, you’ll find Alesund Airport which served nearly a million passengers last year. Most flights are domestic but routes to Denmark, Spain and London Gatwick bring passengers from across Europe to this beautiful part of Norway. Access to Alesund centre from the airport is via a road through tunnels that link the islands.

What is There to See and Do in Alesund?
The Aalesunds Museum in the city is a good place to find out about the city and how it was involved in World War II during the German occupation. In the city, take a walking tour of the art nouveau area and don’t forget to have your camera ready for the buildings are beautiful. A short walk away you’ll find a series of steps, over 400 in total, taking you up Fjellstua from the city park. The view from the top over the city and coastline is spectacular but for those who can’t make the climb, there’s the easy taxi ride to the top. At Tueneset, there’s Europe’s largest sea water aquarium with hundreds of live exhibits. The aquarium is so big you can dive in it to see the exhibits up close and personal.

What Should I buy for Friends Back Home?
Smoked fish is a popular gift, vacuum packed or cool wrapped in insulating material for the lightly smoked kind. Jars of pickled herring are also popular as gifts.

What Should I eat When in Alesund?
Alesund is the centre of the Norwegian fishing industry so understandably, you’ll be expected to try fish whilst you’re there. Locally caught specialities include clip fish and a delicious dish, a little like a fish stew, called bacalao. If you’re not fond of fish, the city is cosmopolitan enough to offer different cuisines.

What do the People do for Entertainment in Alesund?
Alcohol is expensive in Norway and even more expensive when bought in pubs and bars. For this reason many Norwegians prefer to buy their alcohol from supermarkets or state run shops and drink at home with friends. To do this, you’ll have to make friends with young Norwegians and try to get yourself invited to a house party!
