Ålesund

Ålesund is the central city for Möre and Romsdal Fylke (fylke is landscape in Norwegian) with approximately 50.000inhabitants.
It´s originally an old Hansa city (the German merchant congregation that ruled the Baltic Sea in midieval times) but burned down to the ground 1904.
It was beautifully rebuilt in jugend style with the centre of the city built along the waterways.
Coming in just after lunch we were lucky to find space for Dora Mac mooring alongside just in the centre of the city. There will,be some days here enjoying this beautiful town before heading further north to Kristiansund.
