Many different styles of architecture to admire in this canal / river part of the town. A pleasant place to wander round and enjoy on a fine day.

Great atmosphere in the area and you can walk around the small inlet, even on the floating sidewalk beside the boat moorings. Plenty of cafes and places to sit and enjoy the view.

At this spot I understand that Ålesund has been said to be Norway's most beautiful town. An idyllic place for a walk or you can have a seat on one of the benches along the strait with heating cables in!

It is definitely a different kind of town that you might expect travelling through Norway. The point is, unfortunately, that abandoning wooden architecture makes it compete directly with its Netherlands or Hanseatic counterparts - and to tell the truth, it is not a fair competition....More

Since Bergen, Geiranger etc. are all VERY touristic, we were pleased to see some non-tourists here. Unfortunately we were done looking at the handful of nice houses after 2 hours. And bored ourselves out of the city as soon as we could.
