    Stop At: Brosundet i Alesund, Alesund Norway

    Ålesund is built on 7 islands extending out into the ocean, 2 of them, Narvoy and Aspoy created the charming downtown. We start our tour walking through the town streets.
    On the night of January 23rd, 1904, a devastating fire raged through Ålesund. Within only 16 hours, 850 houses were burnt down and 10.000 people were rendered homeless. After the fire, only 230 houses were left in Ålesund's town center, but after a remarkable effort from the local people and mostly thanks to helping from Germany, France, Netherlands, Belgium, and other European countries, the town had been rebuilt already in 1907.

    Stop At: Aalesund Church, Kirkegata 22, Alesund 6004 Norway

    On 23 January 1904, the church was destroyed by the great Ålesund fire. Hundreds of buildings were destroyed and nearly the entire town had to be rebuilt. After the competition of architects, Sverre Knudsen was chosen as the person to design the new Ålesund Church.

    The foundation stone for the new church was laid down on 13 July 1906 by the new King Haakon VII. Roughly 2,000 square metres (22,000 sq ft) of marble cover the church's façade. The church took about three years to be completed and it was consecrated on 15 September 1909
