Norway is a land of beauty boasting water, turrets, spires, and ornamentation on its buildings, giving every town character and charm. Each village and town looks as if it was part of a fairytale and the country is a collection of fjords, fishing villages, little islands, and majestic mountains. The town of Alesund is one of these unique places to visit and with plenty of accommodation options available, you may decide to stay for a little longer.
The town of Alesund has had an interesting past. The current town is just one hundred years old as the original Alesund was devastated by a fire in 1904 on a stormy night. Ten thousand people were left homeless and within three years, the Art Nouveau style of buildings replaced the old Alesund with a new colourful and decorative one. Each building is decorated brightly and turrets and spires prevail.
