If I had to make the list of those cities where you have to visit before you die, Ålesund would be not only in the list but in top 3! Mountains and beautiful islands with atlantic weather are making this place to be one of the most popular places to take photograph of your life. It doesn't matter when you... More

you have to go here- take the small city tour train which will make a stop so you can enjoy the splendid view of the city.

Great hike right in the middle of Alesund. It can be a bit busy and so you'll have to let people get down when you go up and up when you go down. But it is the source of usually funny comments

We checked before we walked to the top and many ppl had reported that it was a challenge to get to the top! Really wasn't that long a climb, steep yes but not over the top hard- lots of families doing the walk- Views from the top were great! As is usual in Norway have to pay to use the... More

418 steps to the top, or one could drive. Amazing view from here. Also a cafe at the top even though it was closed when we were there.

No visit to Alesund is complete without a trip to the top of Askla mountain to take in the breathtaking views of Alesund. You can walk (if your fit!) or get transport top the top. Either way, the view from the top is worth the effort. Spectacular photo opportunities.

You must go here to see the views of Alesund especially on a nice day. You can walk, but we had a rental car after a trip to Runde Island and that was much easier.

The wife and i decided to walk to the viewpoint from our cruise ship, you can book a bus or land train from the pier and i think it cost about £30. From the cruise ship it was alot more. It is about a 15 minute walk from the port and then a climb of 481 steps. It is a... More

From the Cruise Terminal, the best way to see this place is to jump on the Hop On Hop Off bus which takes you to the top of the View point. Once there the views are spectacular across the harbour and across the town. Once at the top the camera will start clicking and not stop I am sure. There... More

The restaurant situated on the western end of Aksla is easy accessable by foot or by car. To enjoy the view outdoor from an outdoor position is free of charge. If you want to enjoy the scenery from a seat in the restaurant one must by food or beverage. The experience gives value for the money.
