Alesund sits in the North of Norway on a row of islands stretching to the Atlantic. As a result the city is surrounded by water and offers some spectacular views. Fjellstu is the most visited part of Alesund and offers an amazing panorama of the surrounding fjords and mountains. There is also a local restaurant here serving authentic local dishes.
