    Here is this years "Slinningsbaal" just about ready: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/alesundogo...le11224439.ece
    Tonight at 2200 hrs. they will put fire to it and burn it all down again. Make total sense for an old "Aalesunder".

    But it is not St.Hans eve before on Tuesday (23. June) you say????
    The new way of doing thing is to celebrate on the nearest Saturday to increase productivity in the district.

    Pictures of the real thing to follow.

    Lens looks good, as does the steps. Could have been worse, they could have been painted pink.

    Thank you so much for this splendidly illustrated "steps review" Helge! Looks great, and I'm sure the new concrete will blend in after a while weathering.
    I'm certainly overdue for a stop-over in Ålesund!

    Nice to see the place again, which we just visited some days before. Lofoten was northbound and we embarked in Kristiansund the same evening. See my "Ralf is on tour..."-thread. Very nice pictures of the new stairs. The new café really looks great!

    It is not only the steps that have been renovated in Ålesund, Fjellstua have been too! Here are some Pictures from the inside.





    The interior have now a retro look that I found very nice to rest my eyes on.


    Retro lamps.

    A new viewpoint is made called the Byrampen! Very popular!











    Finally i was managing to reach Fjellstua and I had to determine if the new steps was good or bad: I think there have been made a great job With upgrading one of Ålesunds biggest attractions.
    Outstanding craftmanship have been made to make the New steps last many years to come. Some will say that it is too much concrete instead of stonesteps and you kan see on the first Picture how much it is of it. Anyways,dont miss this if you are visiting Ålesund!

    Yes ombugge, and here is the report from the New steps up to Fjellstua. I was walking the steps on saturday to check them out and at the same time try out my New lens:Sony 70-300 G SSM.





    Starting at the lower area a New cover had been laid on the path, almost rubberised to prevent People from sliding.



    Many new benches had been fitted.



    The cannon.


    The stone wall had been reinforced and stone steps had New concrete.

    The news that many have been waiting for?
    The steps up to Fjellstua will re-open today: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/alesundogo...le10965599.ece
    Still 418 steps, if you were wondering.

    What is it with Norwegian modern architecture and foremost, architects...? Are they all, or at least those working with renewal and revitalization of cities, smoking their socks, or what???
    This new hurtigrute terminal building, or should I say structure, has nothing to do with Ålesund. At least not the old jugend-style city senter. It's a shame!

    But even if Fjellstua is open for business, how do you get there??
