More Walking Around Molde

After breakfast it was time to finish packing and check out of the Rainbow Hotel. The flight to Bergen was scheduled for late afternoon, so we had most of the day available, but there was a farewell lunch scheduled, although there was a certain amount of confusion about exactly where!

Joey told me of the great view from the Sail Hotel's top floor, so we walked off in that direction to check it out.

Inside Sail Hotel

There's a lounge on the first floor of the hotel with historical information about Molde's experiences in World War II.

We went to the 15th floor to take some photos, but the doors to the balcony were, not surprisingly, locked. The bar was not open either. But I can imagine it would be a delightful place to imbibe and watch the world go by.
