The Town of Roses
From Molde spectacular scenery is accessible by two noteworthy roads. Trollstigen (literally troll ladder, so watch out), twists through 11 hairpin turns as it climbs mountains, at one point crossing an impressive stone bridge over a waterfall.
Then there’s the Atlantic Ocean Road, just five miles long, hopping across small islands via eight bridges right to the ocean’s edge.
Forts were built along the coast by occupying Germans during WWII, one, now a museum, allows for exploration of an underground network of bunkers, with displays of weapons and other memorabilia.
