Local politicians and commerce leaders have actively courted the Dutch airline, KLM, to get a direct service to Amsterdam. KLM is currently working to extend its flights from Norway to the Netherlands, opening access to a large network of destinations worldwide to Norwegian travelers.
Ålesund - an interesting destination for art lovers
After a period of planning, the town was rebuilt in Jugendstil (Art Nouveau), the architectural style of the time. The structures were designed by approximately 20 master builders and 30 Norwegian architects, most of them educated in Trondheim and Charlottenburg, Berlin, drawing inspiration from all over Europe.
Ålesund is a partner in the Art nouveau network, a European network of co-operation created in 1999 for the study, safeguards and development of the Art nouveau.
