  • Molde : the town of the Roses

    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

    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...

  • The church of Molde

    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...

    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.

  • Roses, Jazz and hundreds of mountains

    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.

Molde Restaurants

  • for a great Bacalao

    Eating the local fish-speciality "Bacalao" in this great restaurant in quite some distance in the north-east of Molde, was included in the price of the Hurtigruten-daytour from Kristiansund to Molde. There was free icewater on the table, white bread and complimentary tea or coffee served after the maincourse. Beer and wine and softdrinks were...

  • Is this thing supposed to be a pizza?

    I still remember the good old days, before Dolly Dimple's turned into a nationwide chain...when there was only one restaurant, in Sandnes, back in 1987...that's when they still made great pizza. I had the "Italian" style, thin crust pizza. 120 kroner for a thin loaf with a sticky topping. Sorry, guys, this is not my cup of tea.My friend tried the...

  • Chinese?

    Chinese restaurants are all over the world. Most of them don't serve Chinese food, but something that vaguely looks like and tastes like Chinese. Very few restaurants serve authentic Chinese meals. This restaurant is no exception. One good thing is the harbour view though.

  • Great kebabs!

    With high meat prices in Norway I usually avoid fast food kebabs, because you'll usually be served some sort of processed meat, meat loaf or, if you're lucky, minced meat. Here, too, but nonetheless, the kebabs here are excellently made. BTW, this outlet is owned by the same guy who owns the fast food and pizza restaurant at the town square.

  • Finally some competition

    Egon is a chain restaurant with a menu like TGIF and an interior like the famous Norwegian pizza chain "Peppe's Pizza". I predict that this new addition to Molde's restaurant scene is going to be a hit. Prices range from 150 to 200 NOK for a main course, which is pretty much average for Norwegian standards.The food is nicely presented and nothing...

  • Best avoided

    Supposedly Italian, as the name suggests, but owned by Yugoslawians, this mock-up Italian restaurant is best avoided. I've eaten here twice in the last year, both times were very disappointing and certainly not worth the price. This was described as a steak in red wine sauce...well, what I got were to small pieces of meat DROWNED in brown...

  • When you come to Molde by cruiseship

    When you come to Molde by cruiseship it will be very hard to do any of the sights closeby on your own, so it will be the best to take one of the organized tours of the ship.Kvernes and 'Atlanterhavsveien' are much too far away to be done on your own, roads are quite slow in Norway and traficjams are also not unusual in Molde according to my...

    Molde is certainly a great place to do your shopping, while driving around through the lovely landscape of Norway.

  • Local produce

    This is a buy by the bulk tea and coffee store that also sells local produce, cheeses, cakes and syrups, and often they offer free samples, like this day. This store is rather pricy, but the quality is excellent. NOK 80-100 for a small piece of cheese, or a medium sized bottle of homemade syrup.

  • Norwegian delights - Fjordland

    You'll find Fjordland shelves in most Norwegian food stores, but the shelf at Mega has the biggest selection. Fjordland is a range of ready-made heat-and-serve products that taste great, and most food of this kind does not. With a wide range of traditional Norwegian dishes, this is a must-try when in Norway. Somewhat on the pricy side, but well...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you haven't tried it yet, you should. This is an exiting adventure. Cruise flat sea at 50+ knots or jump the waves for a weightless sensation. Pricy, but well worth it.

    Equipment: All provided: Thermal suit, goggles and gloves, no need to bring anything. The suits are really thermal, don't wear too many layers underneath.

    Favorite thing: Usually, the Molde River trickles through town. There is a tiny waterfall, but not very impressive, except after a heavy rainfall.
