This port town, which was built on the back of fisheries, surprises everyone who looks upon it for the first time. Every building here has a uniform, enchanting style – Art Nouveau. This is because the entire town had to be built from the ground up after a fire devastated practically every building in 1904. Though only one person died then, more than 10000 were left homeless. Today, though, it’s one Norway’s most beautiful cities.
Tourism-wise Alesund serves as an important hub of fjord sightseeing in Norway. The city also lies in a nice view of Sunnmore Alps to the east. A lot of the major tourist attractions are spread out over several islands.
Alesund is also the site of the annual Norwegian Food Festival.
