The Atlantic Road runs along the coast in this region – one of the most scenic highways in the world with a large number of bridges. The road, opened in the 80s, connects Kristiansund in this live stream with the city of Molde.

Of the museums in Hoholmen the Kristiansund Museum (Viking Museum) stands out. The Nordmøre museum in Kristiansund, shown in the webcam, will introduce you to the history of the city.
Research shows that the city shown online, first was inhabited approximately 8,000 years ago. In the 17th century, the Dutch came here. They traded wood and dried cod, which was sent to the Mediterranean countries. In 1742 Kristiansund got a city status. In the 19th century, the Spaniards came here.
During the bombing of Kristiansund in April 1940, the city was badly damaged. After its restoration, modern buildings such as the town hall and church appeared.
