From the municipal park, a pathway comprised of 418 steps leads you to the top, you can take the road Borgundveien - Fjelltunveien or taxi from the town centre to Fjellstua including a 30 minute stop. The mountain Aksla, the mountain lodge "Fjellstua" and the vantage point "Kniven" (the knife) tower over the centre, affording a splendid view of the town, the skerries, and right across to the jagged Sunnmøre mountains. "Fjellstua" have a restaurant, cafeteria and a souvenirshop. From the terrace you can admire the breath taking view.
Ålesund is a unique experience, with its magnificent Art Nouveau architecture and the picturesque Brosundet.
