The tour is a walking tour and it is the best way to see the city!
It starts outside the tourist information and I will take you back to the horrendous night of the great fire in 1904 because this is the reason why the city looks the way it does today.
The beautiful Art Nouveau architecture makes Ålesund world famous and I will take you to many photo stops to show you the most beautiful buildings as well as sharing some funny and quirky facts along the way :)
You get inside information about our way of life, from the early days to modern times. How did they make a living in the early days? How can you recognize the features of art nouveau? Why was Ålesund called Little London? Do you know where room 47 is? Or the heated benches? Or the smallest house in Ålesund? Why does Ålesund need a kayak hotel? And what on earth is a Brude egg?
I will talk you through the history of this city, the amazing architecture and share lots of local and personal stories along the way. I will also provide you with my insider tips on other attractions, what to see and explore, where to eat and drink and whatever else you are wondering about.
It is suitable for all ages and abilities and takes you around the town with many stops. The tour is 1,5 hours.
