Come along and discover the beautiful city of Ålesund. On this walking tour, you will experience the Art Nouveau architecture that the city is known for, get to know more about its history and visit cultural sites. 

Ålesund is built on multiple islands and the heart of Ålesund is stretched over two of these islands, namely Nørvøy and Aspøy. The main industry in this region of Norway is fishing and in Ålesund, this is very visible. Fishing boats can be spotted in the waters that surround the city.

However, Ålesund is most known for its unusually consistent and iconic Art Nouveau architecture. Most of the buildings have been built between 1904 and 1907, after the fire which destroyed over 800 houses in the city center in January 1904.
