    Molde: Roses & Jazz

    by globetrott Updated Feb 19, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Molde is set in one of the most beautiful bays of Norway and you should not miss it, when driving through Norway.
    From the pier in Molde you will have one of the best panorama-views in Norway: A large bay with hundreds of high mountains and various islands are in that panorama and next to the large hotel you will have the old cannons like in my pics and lots of ships passing by all day long ! And there is a large carparking there as well directely at the hotel and a large shoppingcentre.
    Dont miss the reflections of the Rica Hotel, as they will give you a lot of great opportunities for special photos of the mountain-panorama of Molde.
    You can actually walk along the sea in order to get the best views there at the hotel.
    Hurtigruten will pass through Molde as well and stop for a short time there in both directions.

    Molde : the town of the Roses

    by globetrott Updated May 11, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Molde is also called "Town of the Roses" and in fact you will see some roses here or there, all over the town. And in front of the townhall of Molde you will find the monument of a lady with roses, thats all. To be honest, I really did not see a lot more roses than in any other european city, when I visited Molde in August 2009.

    Atlanterhavsveien

    by globetrott Updated May 11, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Atlanterhavsveien is the name of the coastroad between Karvag and Vevang along the coastroad from Molde to Kristiansund and it is 8200 meters long. Atlanterhavseien, the Atlantic-road has one of the most spectacular bridges that I ever saw : There are several parking-lots at both sides of the bridge and from each of them that bridge looks different - see my extra pics as well. It is the highest one of a row of 8 bridges and the only one that is high enough for the local fishermen to sail to their ports.
    I spent half a day at that bridge to make my pics.

    -----------------------------------

    Hurtigruten offers a tour to Kvernes, and to this bridge, including a dinner at the restaurant mentioned in my restaurant-tip of this page. They will make a single stop at the bridge and you can take a photo there like my 2nd,3rd and 4th picture here.

    The church of Molde

    by globetrott Updated May 11, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The church of Molde is quite modern like the rest of the city and it dates back to the year 1953. Unfortunately it was closed while I was there, so I was not able to take a look inside. It was interesting to see that the belfry stands seperate from the church and the only outstanding part of the architecture that you can see from outside is the entrancegate with colorfull glasses (see it in my 3rd photo!).

    The citycentre of Molde

    by globetrott Updated May 11, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the citycentre of Molde you will not find a lot of interesting houses, everything is quite new, you will find some interesting shops, easy parking and thats it. Only when you take a closer look at some of the houses you might find some tiny details that are interesting, but there is definitely no reason to go to Molde for some interesting architecture.

    Roses, Jazz and hundreds of mountains

    by amsor Updated Nov 11, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Molde is called the town of Roses but I think that the town is not worth the visit. But the view from Molde to the hundreds of mountains is really great and that is a good reason to go there.There is also a famous jazzfestival every year in Molde.I went there on a Hurtigrutenship in 2002.

    Its a beautifully shaped bridege starting from Vevabg and you can come to Krisyiansund, a famous picturesque port town.

    Its a magnificent bridge extended over the Atlantic sea. You should not miss it when you come to this region.

    Molde is also called the city of the roses and the jazz, because they have jazz-festivals every year and you will see thousands of roses in the city of Molde.
    I also like the mountains around Molde and it is good for shopping !

    Visit king Birch

    by Toshioohsako Written Jul 29, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Molde was badly bombarded in 1940 by invaders. The King and Crown Princess and Government members were evacuated from Oslo to Molde. The Government was temporarily seated in this city. The Royal family members hid themselves under birch trees in the forest.
    That is why this monument was established called "King Birch Tree".

    Hiking and fishing

    by bluV11t Written Dec 15, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are both easy and hard hiking alternatives in and around Molde. The area north of Molde have well kept hiking trails leading to a number of fishing-lakes.

    You should purchase a state fishing licence to fish in these lakes, it can be purchased at any post office and in some sportsgear shops. For 2005 the price is 30 NOK for a single day, 75 NOK for a week and 150 NOK for the entire season. Children under 16 does not require a fishing license.

    Fishing permits are required to fish many of the best trout and salmon rivers as many of these are privately owned. Fishing permits can be bought locally. Some of the best rivers for salmon are Aura in Eikesdalen, Batnfjordselva in Batnfjord, Eira in Eresfjord, Malmeelva in Malmefjorden, Moaelva in Sylteosen, Oselva in Kleiveosen. Rent a car or go by bus to reach these from Molde. Some are as close as 20 min, others a bit farther away.

    Jazz-festival

    by bluV11t Written Dec 15, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Come to Molde during the jazz-festival when this small town springs to life. Usually set during the 3. week of July (week 29). Be ware, accomodations are hard to find during this week so book early!

    If you're prepared to rough-it the "Jazz-camp" provides a cheap alternative 3km west of the city center. There are busses every half hour or hour from early morning until late at night. Bring your own tent!

    Røkkeløkka

    by knerten Updated Oct 17, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Molde Stadium, also known as "Røkkeløkka" (Røkke's playground), named after Kjell Inge Røkke, once Norway's richest, who donated this stadium to his hometown. Home to Molde Fotballklubb (Molde Football Club), also once one of Norway's best teams, still in the first league, but hopelessly lagging behind...
