Quaint, tree-lined parish church in the heart of the town of Ålesund.
Built with a mix of concrete and Norwegian marble, Ålesund Church is a gorgeously variegated church building dressed in a pleasing mix of browns and greys. Despite its simple exterior, brilliant frescoes decorate every inch of the church’s pulpit in a resplendent palette of colours. In fact, it is so vivid that you might not even notice the stained glass nestled within. The broad window of stained glass itself is a sight to behold, with its vibrant colours depicting the iconic image of Jesus Christ crucified as his followers look on. The simple wooden pews stand in stark contrast to the dazzling pulpit, which both combine to form a memorable architectural wonder that is Ålesund Church. Make a quick prayer within the church, or have a quiet stroll through the lovely adjoining graveyard – Ålesund Church is an under-the-radar stop that will be worth every second of your time.
