For more than 150 years, the Molja Lighthouse  has shown the way for boats entering Ålesund harbor. The Norwegian architect company Snøhetta, which designed Oslo’s Opera House and the National September Eleven Memorial Museum in New York City, has been responsible for the interior, with a bathroom on the ground floor and a bedroom on the first floor. There is a careful balance between history, the rustic feel of a genuine (and still active) lighthouse and modern facilities. The rooms are course circular, just 3 meters across.

Right in the middle of town, but nevertheless in beautiful isolation on the breakwater.  Close to everything but you hear only the sound of the waves and passing boats.  Surprise your partner.  Relax, unwind and watch the ships sail by.

This is for that very special occasion.  An opportunity that doesn’t come along very often. Something entirely unique you will treasure as a memory for ever.

Molja Lighthouse is run and administered by the nearby Hotel Brosundet which is almost equally distinctive in a different way. Hotel Brosundet is located in a 100+ year-old protected building. As a result Molja Lighthouse has become known locally as Room 47 due to the small boutique Hotel Brosundet having 46 rooms within its building. The lighthouse is managed by 62°NORD. Full hotel facilities are available from Hotel Brosundet, including the Maki Restaurant, which has established a superb reputation for its fresh seafood.



Ålesund is a port for Hurtigruten and its ships come right up into the harbor where Molja stands.
