You can still climb up to this view point, and its well worth it because Alesund is a beautiful town and the view from up there is stunning even in winter! Make your way to the end of the street called Vannspringdalen on the south...More

As expected, the world-known view from Aksla and Fjellstua is spectacular. The owner and manager of this restaurant however seems to resent people in general. They close the kitchen before closure time, charge you for a toilet visit, and even charge you for a glass...More

It provides the best view of the town from the top, nice hiking in the moring. It is likely much better view if you can stay to the sunset.

400 stairs above the park of Ålesund you can enjoy the fantastic view of the city, the ocean and most of the surrounding islands and mountains. A great place to visit for the experience, exercise and pictures. The restaurant did not impress the same way.

Visited here whilst on the sightseeing train. Had about 15 minutes to have a look around and take some photos. The views of the fjord below are spectacular. Definitely worth a visit.

Stunning view, if the weather allows it. And it opens only 11:00AM, so make sure to check times before

You can get a taxi, road train or book a trip which includes this Viewpoint, but we wanted to walk from our cruise liner. The walk to the Viewpoint was very steep, but we are pretty fit so managed it with only a couple of...More

A pleasant drive up to the viewpoint and a delightful place to eat and take in the sights. Plenty of parking and some entrancing hiking trails to walk off the food.
