Visit the Art Nouveau centre, located in the old pharmacy building, right in the heart of Alesund. The museum provides an interesting insight into the history of the fire in 1904 and the creative Art Noveau period. The town centre was rebuilt shortly after the fire in the characteristic architecture of that period. You’ll see various examples of this style, that has made Alesund one of the three last Art Nouveau - cities in Europe.
Continue through the town of Alesund and uphill to the little attractive park at the foot of Mount Aksla. Here, you’ll find exotic trees and plants, as well as a memorial stone dedicated to the emperor Wilhelm II, which he also has the main street in town named after him. You may walk up towards Mount Aksla for a spectacular view or enjoy sit in the park for a rest, before heading back to your ship.
