Another interesting construction from an architectural point of view is Molde Radhus (Town Hall) built in 1966. Since its construction, it has not been almost changed.

Despite this, local climate conditions are suitable for roses. Now, the Town Hall is located in the territory of the biggest rose garden in the city.
