Explore Alesund

There are numerous attractions to visit during your stay, one of which is the Alesund Museum. Rebuilt after a devastating fire in 1904, Alesund is now internationally renowned for its unique Art Nouveau architecture. The museum provides visitors with a taste of what life was like in Alesund before and after the fire. Another museum worth a visit is the open-air Sunnmore Museum, which features various types of boathouses and farmhouses.

A stroll through the town centre reveals colourful and charming architecture, featuring a myriad of spires, turrets and medieval ornaments. The Art Nouveau Centre is definitely worth a visit with its magnificent Art Nouveau  building. The picturesque old harbour is also charming and is home to the excellent Fisheries Museum.

Take a trip to the Atlantic SeaPark, which is one of Northern Europe's largest aquariums, and is built into the coastal landscape, facing the sea. This park provides tourists with an insight into life beneath the waves.

The outermost islands are easily accessible by car via sub-sea tunnels and bridges, and the drive to the quaint fishing village of Alnes is particularly interesting. Skodje, to the east, has a magnificent fjord landscape with great facilities for outdoor activities all year round. The municipality is surrounded by wide forests with idyllic summer farms and old forest roads.

Frequently asked questions

Is the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
