A must to visit in Ålesund. We visited Ålesund several years ago before pandemic and there used to be entrance fee to enter the Fjellstua. However this time, 2022, it’s free to enter. The café however is closed and not operational. So I’m not really sure if in the future it’s still gonna be free to enter. This is the highest point in this aksla viewpoint attraction. It was windy when we were there. Tip: always bring jacket with you.

it's a great 418 steps to the top. And you're reward with 360 degree view of the entire city and the islands comprising the city of Alesund. The steps all have handrails so its pretty safe. And there's a restroom when you reach the top.

Phenomenal viewpoint up above the city, lovely views, close to 360 degrees of Alesund and its islands. Expect it to take around 60 minutes round-trip. There is a small park at the top and a good sized indoor viewing area.

The viewpoint up at the Fjellstua on the Aksla mountain is great and the walk up the 418 steps of the staircase is equally so. I went up at dusk when the lights of the city were coming on. The upgraded staircase is very nice with an abundance of rest stops complete with single and multiple user wooden seats, lights mounted on the railings and an upgraded concrete staircase. It is close to the city and offers an amazing insight to the layout of Ålesund. A must goto place for every visitor and resident alike.

The sun was shining and the walk up the hill was worth it when we got to the top. The view breathtaking!
Free to enter the look out point but the cafe was closed.
If you feel it’s too much like hard work you can get the hop on hop off bus. Well worth it

Enjoyed the hike to the viewpoint and appreciated the overlooks and stopping points on the way up (and down). We walked up in the evening so the restaurant was closed, but the balcony was open to all which was appreciated! We hiked the 53 steps before the official 418 started. Nice to know where you were at along the way with the periodically numbered steps.

This view point overlooks Alesund a gives an awesome perspective of town. It’s 418 steps to the top from the park below but it’s so worth the effort. There is a bar at the top, but it can get very busy when there’s a cruise ship in and is as expensive as expected (95 kr for a cider), but it has to be done.

Great views of Ålesund and the surrounding fjords to be had. Fun walk up the 418 steps with a number of stop and view points. View at the top is a great reward. And as I’ve said a few times if you don’t like crowds visit after 5 like we did to avoid all the cruise ship idiots. If you do this you will be rewarded with peaceful uninterrupted quiet views of another beautiful area in Norway

The biggest tourist attraction in Ålesund. Fantastic view over the city, the fjords and the ocean. About 400 steps from the city centre, 10-20 minutes. I recommend you to go even if the weather is quite bad, it’s spectacular anyway!

Well worth the 418 stairs up. You get a stunning view of the city.
A bit annoying are the many tour busses full of tourists, though. A little further up is another small viewpoint that is a little more quiet, but the view not as good.
