A group of tourists on a walking tour of Ålesund
  • Discover the town Ålesund and learn about its fascinating history  

  • Stroll among its colorful streets and find out why the architecture here is so striking 

  • Explore Brosundet harbor, where fishermen still sell their catch directly from their boats 

One of the best ways to explore Ålesund is on foot, and this walking tour takes you close to the spires, turrets, and medieval-style ornaments that characterise the town.  

One winter’s night in 1904, a fire raged through Ålesund, leaving 10,000 people homeless. Over the next three years, the entire town centre was rebuilt in the Art Nouveau style. Today, Ålesund is one of Norway’s most unique and beautiful towns.   

We’ll stroll past colourful houses in the pedestrian zone and learn about Ålesund’s strong maritime traditions as we visit Brosundet – fishermen sell their catch directly from their boats in this pretty-as-a-picture harbor.
