    I agree that Alesund is one of the most beautiful cities, which i have seen so far. The views from the hills near Alesund are fantastic. Replacing this ugly high building in the center of the city one day will be a great step to improve Alesund as a place where one "has to see" some day. I am very amused about your discussion what is where. So i will add some pictures to give you some exercises. Where are these pictures made?

      Hi Ralf. Nice pictures.

      Number one I think is the corner of Apotekergata and Bakkegata.

      I am not sure about number two.

      But number three is Kongens gate. Maybe 12? 14?

      Number four is the stairs from Kongens gate to Lihauggate up to Rica Parken Hotel, and the city park.

        Hi Torbjörn!

        I think you are right with number one but my citymap is not so detailed. Apotekergata is good! But this one might help you:


        I have a second picture of number 2 and now it is resolved:


        Number 3 is correct, but you have to check the number by yourself.

        Number 4 off course is correct.

                  Everything had been explained by the time I caught up with this thread, but just to keep my Ålesund credentials in good order here are some photos I took of a couple of these buildings!

                  Look - there has been some re-painting here between my and Ralf's visits.

                  Eight hours ehp! You’ll have time for both viewpoints! But you'll need to get into training for all those steps up to Fjellstua !

                    I had my home in Aalesund for 20 years. I lived in the town center, and passed most of these artworks every day. The problem is that 30 years or more ago, most of the artwork was paintet in the same color as the rest of the building.
                    I think I have to go "home" to see the details that I have seen so many times before without seeing them.
