Molde - city of roses and jazz.

Molde, fondly called the city of roses for the way they flourish in the mild climate that this town benefits from, is located on the Romsdal peninsula. It is built on a middle-ages trading post and later became the centre of textiles commerce. Modern-day Molde is the administrative centre for the region and the capital of the province of Møre and Romsdal.

From the home mountain, the Varden, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Romsdalsalps with more than 200 peaks to see. The most known is Romsdalshornet which is 1550 meters above sea level.
