Nice open air museum a few kilometres from where ship is moored. Nice modern town as it was burnt down at the end of 19th century and had to be rebuilt.

They had 6 ships in port and everything was too crowded for size of town. We took Hop on Hop Off and it was terrible because there were so many busses at the view point that we sat on the bus not lmoving for more than an hour. Don't ... Read More

We were going to take the hop on hop off bus but were glad we changed our mind. We heard from others that they were stranded at distant stops because the bus was full and no one was willing to get off. One couple were stuck an hour and a half. We did see some empty seats late in the day but they obviously sold too many tickets. We spent the morning in the Art nouveau museum and adjoining art gallery. The town had burnt down in about 1910 and had been rebuilt in Art Nouveau style which is explained in the museum. We walked the streets looking at the buildings and passed the cathedral which was closed. We found a trendy coffee bar overlooking the harbour and found tea or coffee are affordable compared to alcohol!! Read Less

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.

There wasn't much to choose from for excursions. The ship offered 3.5 & 8 hr ones and they were quite expensive. Actually none of the tours are cheap but you don't want to take the chance of missing the ship. They have an ... Read More
There wasn't much to choose from for excursions. The ship offered 3.5 & 8 hr ones and they were quite expensive. Actually none of the tours are cheap but you don't want to take the chance of missing the ship. They have an observatory at the top of a hill that has stairs all the way or you can take a bus or a tour to go up. We didn't realize at the time but just took pictures of it. We only walked around the town which was quiet since it was a Saturday morning. There were a lot of the shops not open so found a restaurant for coffee and to do emails. They have their own currency - NOK so had to charge them. Read Less

We took the Hop On Hop Off bus - as it took us to the extremes of the town and enabled us to visit the Sunnmore Museum (recreation of traditional, old houses) and the Aquarium. Able to spend a couple of hours at each, without the 'rush; of a guided tour. Alesund was a bit dull, and we were docked overnight Read Less
