In the Town Hall Square in the Town of Roses stands the bronze statue of the Rose Maiden, surrounded by a dancing fountain. The Rose Maiden is young and beautiful and has her arms full of roses. The sculpture was a gift to Molde in 1971 from Gotlib Moe, owner of the former clothing factory Hovding Konfeksjonsfabrikk. It was sculpted by Ragnhild Butenschon. Molde Town Hall was completed in 1966 and is the result of an architectural competition won by the architects Cappelen and Rodahl. Built in concrete and stone it features gold-tinted glass. The roof of the town hall boasts one of the town's most beautiful rose gardens.

Center of the city, beautiful flowers on the side walk. This is a charming place to relax and enjoy the breathtaking view across the town hall (mountains and fjord).

Stopped here after seeing the sign. The rose garden was not very impressive at this time of the year but the view from there was very nice.

.... and who doesn't like water...? It's a symbol for the city (the roses), it's a nice statute and a waterfall around it. Straight forward.

But we were too early for the actual roses. An interesting design to have the garden on the roof of the council building which adjoins the interesting church with a separate bell tower. Pretty town.

What more can I say about the Rose Maiden Molde Town Hall. If you mean just the bronze statue itself, it sets in the Town Hall Square surrounded by a dancing fountain. You can walk past it anyway when you're visiting the town. Walk around...More

Ok, there is a statue i front of the city hall in Molde. In the summer it is a fountain, in winter it is more boring. So if you go to Molde, you will pass it anyway, but nothing to be exited about. Just a...More

A lovely statue depicting the image of the town. There's also a great rose garden - both above the town hall and also by the church. The roses are well tended, and smell gorgeous.
