Lonely Planet review
The 418 steps up Aksla lead to the splendid Kniven viewpoint over Ålesund and the surrounding mountains and islands. Follow Lihauggata from the pedestrian shopping street Kongensgata to the start of the 20-minute puff to the top of the hill. There’s also a road to the top; take Røysegata east from the centre, then follow the Fjellstua signposts up the hill. Up top, the Fjellstua Kafé is a good place to recover your breath while enjoying a drink with a view.
