    by gordonilla Updated Apr 4, 2011
    1 more image

    H.N. Jacobsen's book shop is located within a protected 3-winged building in a beautiful garden. It was built in 1860, and was initially a "realskúli" - a secondary school until 1918. It has been a bookshop since it ceased to be a school.

    It is one of the best in town for foreign language publications.

    Opening Hours:

    Mánadag - Mikudag: 09.30 - 17.30
    Hósdag - Fríggjadag: 09.30 - 18.00
    Leygardag: 09.30 - 14.00
    Fyrsta leygardag í mánaðinum: 09.30 - 16.00

    I am sure you have started to understand Faroese by this point!

    What to pay: next to the tourist information offices

    This was an ineresting experience, I was surprised by the number of shops the centre contained. It was enjoyable to do the normal saturday thing - going shopping and see what was happening down town. There was a buzz and it was a great atmosphere - seels everything from books to clothes to plants to medicines.

    Sirri: "A treasure from the Vikings"

    by gordonilla Written Apr 6, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sirri

    Sirri is the Faroese clothing company - and they use organic, all natural dye free yarn from pure Faroese wool.

    Their products can be bought in the Faroes as well as Denmark and Norway.

    What to buy: Try a wonderfully warm jumper or scarf.

    Remember to ask for your VAT free cheque. I think if you spend more than 300 DKK you are entitled to the VAT free offer.

    Andreas i Vagsbotn: Souvenir shopping

    by Lunaina Updated Jul 20, 2007

    A big souvenir shop in Torshavn is 'Andreas i Vagsbotn'. It is near the harbour of Torshavn and offers a lot of local craftwork and all other typical Faroese souvenirs. So you will find puffin-stuff, Faroese flags, clothes, cards and much more... We did not find the people of the shop too friendly, when we did not buy much... hahaha..... But I am sure every tourist to the Faroe Islands will love the people, who are usually extremely friendly!

    Niels Finsens Gøta: The main shopping street

    by TomFoolery Written Aug 29, 2005

    Niels Finsens G��ta

    The main shopping street in Tórshavn is Niels Finsens Gøta (incidently named after Faroese Doctor Niels R Finsen, who won the nobel prize in 1903)

    There are a number of touristy shops along here, as well as the Tourist Information Centre. There's also an excellent bookshop, selling books in English, Faroese and Danish.

    The SMS Shopping Centre

    The rather dreary looking SMS Shopping Centre (or SOS Shopping Centre as it's occasionally known) contains Tórshavn's largest supermarket Miklagarður, a few fast food outlets and a few other interesting stores.
