Alesund General Information
Norway’s enviable array of charming, fjord-hugging villages is almost too much bear. The sight of grand, achingly picturesque landscapes offset by a tidy shoreline hamlet is enough to obliterate any digital camera’s memory card and seemingly, Norway has a ton of them to spare. Count Alesund as one such destination.
The town of 43,000 people in More og Romsdal county, in Norway’s gorgeous Sunnmore district, is an attractive little seaport with a unique set of attractions in its pocket. Surprisingly, significant Art Nouveau architecture is one of them. Indeed, the top must-see point of interest in Alesund is the remarkable Jugenstilsenteret, or Art Nouveau Centre. Inaugurated by Queen Sonja in 2003, the museum-cum-art gallery is the town’s pride and joy. Alesund’s most prominent claim to fame however, might well be as a gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage West Norwegian Fjords. Both Geirangerfjord and Naeroyfjord are a relatively short, photogenically scenic cruise from Alesund. While the small city’s a first-rate port of call for those skipping off to other climes, make a point to stick around an extra day or two. Alesund has a habit of growing on people who make time for it and incites a kind of whimsical, hindsight nostalgia among those who choose not to seek out its manifold charms.
