Walking City Tour


It was the night of 23rd January 1904 when the catastrophic city fire broke out and destroyed the center of Ålesund.

After the fire, a new city rose, phoenix-like literally from the ashes, in the architectural style of Art Nouveau, or Jugendstil as called in Ålesund. Ålesund is very different from other Norwegian towns regarding its distinguishing architectural style of Art Nouveau. The best way to enjoy this beautiful city is to stroll through its streets on foot with heads up because you will not want to miss any single detail of the Art Nouveau style ornamented and decorated buildings.

The ravishing facades of the buildings on the walking street of Kongensgate, the amazing view of the Saga islands, the interesting stories of the city fire, the picturesque sound, the cobblestone streets, and other small surprises will make your day in the city.

A Recent Review of this tour

Tayfun was at the port super on time. After that he took us walking through beautiful Alesund for two ours and was very beautiful, interesting and enriching. He wanted to walk more and was very enthusiastic, but we were a little hungry and tired and decided to go to a local restaurant he suggested and it was wonderful. Great guide. Thank you Tayfun!!Our greetings and blessings!!!Without you we wouldn't have seen Alesund in a nice organized way with the little time we had. Saludos!!!
