Strewn prettily on the shore of its fjord, The City of Roses welcomes you to an awesome panorama of the 222 mostly snow-capped peaks comprising the Romsdal Alps. It is a sight that has inspired artists from centuries, and has continuously attracted visitors such as yourself since the 19th century. Its charms extend to its climate, which is blessed by the warm Gulf Stream, resulting in mild winters and delicious summers that support luxuriant vegetation not seen elsewhere at this latitude. The open-air Romsdal Museum is a collection of historic buildings collected from the region and arranged in a small village-like setting. The Fisheries Museum, on an island in the fjord, gives insight into the daily lives of the men who seasonally harvested the silver hordes of herring from the surrounding seas.
