Ålesund is een stad in Noorwegen gebouwd in Art Nouveau stijl. Wat architectuur betreft is het een zeer speciale plaats.
Ålesund is een stad en zeehaven in Noorwegen. De stad staat bekend om zijn typische bouwstijl. Nadat de hele stad in 1904 door een brand was verwoest, werd de stad heropgebouwd in éénzelfde stijl, Art Nouveau. Op wonderbaarlijke wijze kwam slechts één persoon om in de brand, maar velen werden dakloos. Het is een kleine stad, met slechts enkele bezienswaardigheden die op wandelafstand van elkaar liggen.
Zoals ik al zei is de belangrijkste aantrekking van Ålesund de architectuur. Een wandeling door het centrum van de stad en de binnenhaven staat garant voor veel mooie lomofoto’s.
Om een mooi zicht op Ålesund en de bergen te hebben kan je vanuit het stadspark de trappen naar Fjellstua op lopen. De klim naar Fjellstua bestaat uit 418 treden, maar zelfs op halve hoogte heb je al een spectaculair uitzicht op de stad en de fjorden.
Als je meer wil leren over de architectuur kan je het beste een bezoekje brengen aan het Art Nouveau Centrum, waar alle documenten over de architecturale geschiedenis van de stad bewaard worden.

Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.
