Distinguished by its numerous spires, towers and highly detailed ornamentation, Ålesund is a town renowned across the world for its beautiful Art Nouveau architecture. It owes this to the devastating fire which burned a large proportion of the city to the ground in 1904, following which the entire town was rebuilt in the fashionable style of the time, Art Nouveau. Your trip around Ålesund will begin on the pier, where you will be met by a guide who will take you on a pleasant walk through the streets of this enchanting town. Along the way you will pass the picturesque fishing port of Brosundet, the special Apotekertorget square, and the beautifully decorated main street. We will also visit Jugendstilsenteret, which is the national centre for Art Nouveau. The museum offers everything from modern multimedia presentations to original interiors, and provides a fascinating insight into the history of Art Nouveau. This trip around Ålesund provides you with a great opportunity to savour both the rich history of the town, and the charming street life.
