Alesund Cruise Port

Port of Alesund: An Overview

Alesund is located on a series of islands along Norway's coast. It is best known for its art nouveau architecture, which you can see walking through town and learn about at the Art Nouveau Center. After much of the town burned in a 1904 fire, the city was rebuilt in this striking architectural style.

Visitors can climb the 400-plus steps to the top of Mt. Aksla for city views or take a quick shuttle out to the Atlantic Sea Park, one of Scandinavia's largest aquariums. A popular excursion is the Path of the Trolls, a coach trip along a scenic roadway with 11 hairpin turns and views of the Stigfoss Waterfall and the Troll Wall, the highest vertical mountain wall in Europe.
