Student in Molde and Kristiansund city

Publisert:Sist oppdatert:

Let's be honest - Molde and Kristiansund are two small towns but that does not necessarily mean that there are no things to invent!

Shopping and cafe life!

A 10-minute bus ride from the school you will find the center with shopping malls and shops galore. Molde center has a main street - Storgata - where there are several clothing stores, interior design shops, cafes and restaurants. Right in the center you will find Moldetorget a shopping center with a wide selection of shops. Here you will also find two of the city's finest restaurants with views of the fjord and the mountains, Glass and Köl. Moldetorget also has several cafés such as Kneippen, Den Gode Smak, and Espresso House. (Psst, The Good Taste has possibly the city's best coffee and views!) See more about Moldetorget here.

In the center you will also find one of the best bowls you have ever tasted at the local bakery Fole Godt! They are located at the very end of Storgata, right by the bus stop and deliver fresh bread and buns every day.

10-15 minutes from the center you will find another shopping center, Roseby. Here there are many clothing stores for both women and men, as well as interior design stores such as Kremmerhuset and Søstrene Grene. There you will also find the Strawberry Girls when you feel like a slightly better lunch, or Burger King the next day. From the school you can take the 701 bus all the way to Roseby. Check out what Roseby has to offer here.

Right by Roseby you will find Storsenteret. Here you will find everything you need for the dormitory at stores such as: Clas Olson, Europris, Bohus, Skeidar and Power. It is also at Storsenteret that you will find Vinmonopolet. 701 buses also take you all the way here! Find out what else you can find at Storsenteret here.

The cultural city of Molde

The Jazz Festival

Molde has a rich cultural life with many exciting large and small events throughout the year. Molde's great pride (except MFK like that about every other year) is the Jazz Festival! It takes place every year, always in week 29. Although the festival is called Moldejazz, it must be said that they present a wide range of music and activities. World stars such as John Legend, Bob Dylan, Kendrik Lamar, Mary J. Blige and Missy Elliott have previously played at Romsdalsmuseet, while Norwegian treasures such as Karpe, DiDerre, Aurora, Sondre Justad, Cezinando, Dagny and Highasakite have also graced the jazz program. For those who are big fans of actual jazz music, we promise that it is what fills most of the program, and at previous festivals, legends such as Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, The Blues Borthers Band and Norah Jones have headlined the festival.

The jazz festival warms the entire population of Molde and suddenly the center is filled with people, life and movement. There is a parade (street parade) through the main street in the center every day with music and dancing. Stalls from all over the world that sell everything between heaven and earth, food trucks, concerts in all arenas at almost all hours of the day, in addition, Alexandraparken is turned into a large nightclub. There is something for everyone, always! And even though the weather varies drastically, this is the one week a year where the whole of Molde enjoys themselves out with friends and acquaintances every single night.

Plassen - Biblioteket, & Teateret Vårt

Here in Molde we like to gather everything in one place, therefore you will find all cultural experiences at Plassen right in the center. Here you have the city's library and theater, as well as Café Kurt which is used for many different events. This is a relatively new building that brings together the city's cultural points in one and the same building. Check out what Plassen has to offer here.
