“Great View!”

Fjellstua Viewpoint
Ranked #1 of 65 things to do in Alesund
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

Nice short walk up to the viewpoint. Along the way there are a couple places to sit and absorb the view.
The view from the top is great but i can imagine it being so much better with clear skies or during the fall/winter when you can see the sun setting at an earlier time than in the summer.

A well-maintained staircase leads from the city park up the hill to views over Alesund and the neighboring region. If you are on a cruise, simply head through the town to the base of the nearby hill, where you will find a lovely city park. In the park, there is a statue (see photo) and he appears to be pointing to the start of the path to the stairs. There are 418 steps to the top and the climb was not too vigorous; there are plenty of opportunities to stop, sit, look at the views.

If it is wet, wear suitable shoes so you don't slip where the stairs are just carved stone. Just don't miss the opportunity to look over this lovely town and the surrounding area. Like much of Norway, it is just fabulous.

Tip: at the top, there is a restaurant and souvenir shop; they want 10 kroner (about $1.75 U.S.) from "customers only" just to walk out on the balcony for a view. Better to just head up the path of the hill a little ways where you can see across just fine.

This is one of those places you need to be sure to go to because of the wonderful views of the surrounding area. There are uneven stairs going up that will certainly give you a cardio workout.

easy walk up the steps to a fantastic lookout. well worth the effort (if you are under 70 and can't do it you need to exercise more!)
