If you want a beautiful experience both for mind and body, you should walk the 418 steps up to the view point of Fjellstua. The islands, the ocean, the mountains - it's just beautiful in any weather condition! The cafe/restaurant is quite expensive, but the view is really worth the effort. The stairs have recently been rehabilitated and are also... More

A must for all visiters of Ålesund.. New stairs with light from city park up to viewpoint. Nice cafe at dag time and dinner place in the evening.

The view takes your breath away. You can see miles after miles. Some parts of the town look like Venice. Place is always filled with tourists and for a good reason. Definitely a must-go spot if you're in Alesund.

This was our first port of call on our Eclipse cruise. Fantastic view on a beautiful sunny day. A view not to be missed while in town !!

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 side of the hill. There are brown signs pointing the way from the city centre,... More

With the stairs from the city park it is a short walk to the best view of Aalesund. With a small restaurant inside and a small café outside it spells a good trip for everyone in the family. You also get a good view of the surrounding Isles around Aalesund. It should be the first point of visit when arriving... More

Right now the 418 steps leading up to Fjellstua are closed for repairs. They will reopen in April/May 2015. There are, however, two alternatives: by car via Fjelltun or on foot up Vannspringdalen. Walking is a very nice alternative and the path is well signposted. Anyone can do that in 35 - 40 minutes and you will enjoy a nice... More

This Viewpoint provides a picturesque view of the charming Alesund and surrounding landscape, something which we,on our first day in the town, found invaluable to find our bearings. The walk up the steps can be rather strenuous at times although we did encounter several young children and elderly individuals walking up and the view at the top is of course... More

The 418-step trail was closed for reconstruction (should open sometime on spring'15 I think), so I drove to the top. One can stand on the roof of what looks to be a German WWII-period bunker to get an unobstructed view of the city of Alesund and the isles around it.
