Something for everybody
Tórshavn is a cosy town that mainly consists of small houses in every colour. It has all that it takes to be a tiny little capital - there is something truly special about Tórshavn. The town is a charming blend of old and new. In the area around the harbour lies Tinganes, where the government is located. The ‘old town’ of Tórshavn is also here.
The cute and small houses have been restored over the last years and the area has turned in to a cosy place where people want to live. Skansin is located over the harbour. This is an old fortress built in 1580. It was built in order to defend Tórshavn from pirates. Stay at Hotel Hafnia or our brand new Hotel Brandan, which will open in May 2020.
