Ålesund city center

Art Nouveau architecture

The city of Ålesund has around 50 000 inhabitants and is one of the most important fishing harbors in Norway. In the city center you can visit shops, galleries and restaurants or just stroll around in the beautiful city.

After a devastating fire in 1904 which destroyed most of the old wooden buildings, the town was completely rebuilt on the initiative of Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany. As a result, Ålesund’s architecture has a unique concentration of Art Nouveau – Jugendstyle.
