The small city of Molde was originally a trading post in the Middle Ages and by the late 19th century it earned the nicknamed the “City of Roses” for its lavish gardens and parks.

Today that moniker still fits even though much of the city and its greenery was destroyed by fires in 1916 and 1940. One of the city’s best rose gardens can be found on the roof of the town hall, offering great views of the 222 majestic mountain peaks comprising the Molde Panorama.

Along Storgata, Molde’s main shopping street, visitors can find cafes and shops of all kinds, and just a short walk from the centre is the Romsdal Museum, an open-air museum showcasing buildings from the 1600s to early 1900s.

Also nearby is the Fisheries Museum on the island of Hjertøya, which is a replica of a small fishing vil-lage with authentic buildings, boats and fishing equipment that depict local culture from the 1850s onwards.

The city, one of the popular ports of call for the Norwegian Coastal Voyage, is also known for the Molde Jazz Festival that happens every July. Other points of interest in the surrounding areas include the Trollstigen road, the Atlantic Ocean Road, Trollkirka (Troll Church) and Trollveggen.
