the City of Ålesund
Art Nouveau architecture
The Atlantic Sea-Park is beautifully situated along the ocean Front at Tueneset, approximately 3 km west of Ålesund, and represents one of the largest aquariums in Europe. The park contains 4000 m2 of public and exhibition space, in addition to 6000 m2 of coastal scenery, with fishing stands, hiking trails, bathing sites and outstanding diving venues. Cafeteria and souvenir shop.
The Atlantic-Sea Park is unique, built into coastal surroundings and adapted to modern exhibition principles. Large landscape aquariums teem with ocean life from up and down the Atlantic, with an emphasis on the western regions. Enjoy watching the divers feeding the fish by hand in the Atlantic Ocean tank!
Ålesund has one of the largest export harbours in the world for "Klippfisk", i.e. split, dried and salted cod. The Coastal Steamer (Hurtigruten) has daily departures.
