A great place to have a good lunch. An amazing view of the city and the harbor. This place must be visited if you are in Ålesund.

Drove up on the winding roads, also possible to walk up from city center. A great view for pictures of the city.

It provides the best view of the town from the top, nice hiking in the moring. It is likely much better view if you can stay to the sunset.

400 stairs above the park of Ålesund you can enjoy the fantastic view of the city, the ocean and most of the surrounding islands and mountains. A great place to visit for the experience, exercise and pictures. The restaurant did not impress the same way.

Visited here whilst on the sightseeing train. Had about 15 minutes to have a look around and take some photos. The views of the fjord below are spectacular. Definitely worth a visit.

Stunning view, if the weather allows it. And it opens only 11:00AM, so make sure to check times before
