December night in Molde.

The Molde panorama is the renowned panoramic view of some 222 partly snow-clad peaks, seen from the city of Molde, Norway. It can be observed from all over the city, but the viewpoint of Varden, accessible by car, on the top of the hill (404 meters above sea level) behind the city, is generally considered to offer the best view.

The mountains of the panorama are located 15-40 km to the south, south-east and south-west of Molde, and therefore often creates dramatic displays of changing colors and contrasts in the shifting light throughout the day, and when reflecting in the Romsdalsfjord.

The panorama has been a major tourist attraction for over 150 years.
