Ålesund is a unique experience, its magnificent Art Nouveau architecture. Experience also one of Europe's largest aquariums, The Atlantic Sea-Park. Built into the coastal landscape, it provides facinating insight into the multitude of life beneath the waves.
Ålesund has one of the largest export harbours in the world for "klippfisk", i.e. split, dried and salted cod, and a bustling, picturesque fishing port along the old harbour "Brosundet" with Skansegata where you can buy fresh fish and prawns.
