The lovely little fjord city of Molde, ideally located between some of Fjord Norway’s most famous attractions, offers a seductive mix of jazzy vibes and wonderful views.

Framed by mountains on the shore of the Romsdalsfjord lies Molde, renowned for its scenic surroundings. Thanks to the many lush rose gardens around the city, Molde is often called the “town of roses”.

Each summer, thousands of jazz enthusiasts from near and far turn every corner of the city into a week-long music celebration during the Molde International Jazz festival, the second oldest jazz festival in Europe.

With a network of paths, trails, and skiing tracks, Moldemarka is a natural playground for active travellers in the wintertime. At the Varden viewpoint, you can enjoy the extraordinary vista of 222 mountain peaks.

Dig into the city’s fascinating history at the Romsdal museum, find inner peace at the charming island of Hjertøya, and enjoy “a drink with a view” at Masta Skybar in Rica Seilet hotel, Molde’s tallest building.
