“wonderful views and great exercise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

My daughter and I hiked up this steep stairs and were rewarded with an amazing view and great exercise. It only takes about 10 - 15 minutes to climb up. While we were climbing up there was a group of three running up and down the stairs without breaking a sweat!

“Just do it !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

It's a steep haul up the steps from the park at the base, but it's worth it for the fabulous views - and it's much easier coming down !

Even in the rain, it is a must do for tourists. it starts out with a long sloping walk and then the steps will start. there is a railing all the way up to hold on to

“Cliff's King”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

437 steps to the top! But Alesund view will compansate pain in your legs! And if will save some power to move futher to the small pad with wind-cock you'll get great bonus: perfect panoramic view. You'll able to see surrounding islands, ships moving by various ways. Then, you can go to cafe to get some coffee and to hide from the wind. You deserve it.

“Great for taking photo's of the area.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

The viewpoint is a great way of taking really good photo's of Alesund and the islands around it. It can be reached by either bus or walking up some 400 steps to the top. We got the red tour bus to the top, as it was one of the places it visited!
Inside the viewpoint, there is a café and toilet facilities, and windows all the way round, which is nice if the weather takes a turn for the worst like it did when we were there!
The café is quite dated, so a bit of modernising would't go amiss, but all in all, a nice place to visit for a spare hour.
