A beautiful Jugendstil treasure. After a devastating fire 100 years ago, the town was rebuilt in the art nouveau style, and there are hundreds of lovely buildings. Walk immediately up the 418 steps to the top of Aksla Mountain for superb views. It's a great walking town to explore on your own. The Jugendstilsenteret Museum is a must. Read Less

Took hop on and off bus and with the exception of the aquarium at the far end of the line the entire route could easily have been a walking tour as well.

Beautiful art nouveau buildings. The Nordlys only stopped for a short time but still enough to walk into town, take pictures and re board the ship.

Freezing, wet and miserable and I'd been there before. P and O got an excellent downtown berth.

We took the HOHO bus and had a great experience. The Sunnomore Museum is wonderful and we had lunch at the top of the viewpoint. This is a beautiful small town with great experiences.

We walked to town it was quiet. If you are going to buy souvenirs this town has the better prices over all but Norway is pretty expensive

Pretty old town that burned down 100 years ago and was subsequently rebuilt. Climbed up to viewpoint (450 odd steps) for cracking views of Alesund.

Very interesting buildings, easy to walk around. Didn't walk up Mount Aksla, although it looked ok if you are reasonably fit.

Alesund was fully rebuilt in 1904 after a fire, our visit being the 17th May which was also a National Holiday in Norway as they celebrate their independence from Sweden. We were docked within easy walking distance of the town. We were able to watch a parade by the Norwegians of all ages with the majority wearing their national costume, the students passing out wear red dungarees. All shops were of course closed, barring a few convenience stores. We walked up the 418 steps beyond the national park for spectacular views of the surrounding area. Coffee and cake at the top as a reward. The weather was perfect. Read Less

A beautiful port where you can take the bus to the top of the mountain and around town. There is wifi available in the visitors office. It is also small enough to walk around on your own.

Before Alesund we called in at Honnigsvaag where we took a fantastic excursion to North Cape. We also called in at Alta for another great excursion in search of the Northern Lights. In Alesund we had another gentle stroll round.

Small, very quiet but quaint port. There was a viewing point which involved climbing around 400 steps which we didn't do...but should have.
