  • 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 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".

Molde Restaurants

  • 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.

    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.
