The city of Ålesund has 45.000 inhabitants and is one of the most important fishing harbours in Norway. After a devastating fire in 1904 which destroyed most of the old wooden buildings, the town was completely rebuilt on the initiative of Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany. As a result, Ålesunds architecture is unusually consistent and has a unique concentration of Art Nouveau – Jugendstyle. A pretty new city with an old touch!

La pequeña ciudad de Ålesund es uno de los puertos pesqueros más importantes de Noruega. Después de un incendio que destruyó la mayoría de los edificios de madera en 1904, la ciudad fue completamente reconstruida por iniciativa del emperador Wilhelm de Alemania. Como resultado de ello, la arquitectura de Ålesund tiene una estructura inusualmente consistente y cuenta con una singular concentración de Art Nouveau – Modernismo.

Die kleine Stadt Ålesund ist einer der wichtigsten Fischerhäfen Norwegens. Nach einem Feuer im Jahr 1904, das die meisten der alten Holzhäuser zerstörte, wurde die Stadt auf Initiative von Kaiser Wilhelm II vollständig rekonstruiert. Aus diesem Grund ist die Architektur von Ålesund ungewöhnlich einheitlich und bietet eine einzigartige Konzentration an Art Nouveau Jugendstil.
