    New Herrnhut Mission

    New Herrnhut Mission
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: The mission was built in 1747 to house the headquarters of the Greenland Moravian Mission, sent by command of King Christian IV. They were sent to assist Hans Egede. It seems that this did not work, so the Moravians, left the mission and set up their own mission on the distant side of the peninsula.

    The building has been many things over the years, and is currently home to the University of Greenland - supporting 100 students.

    Arqaluk Plads (Arctic Gardens)

    Snowy Arctic Gardens (1)
    2 more images

    Favorite thing: I am sure that as i was visiting in the late winter months - I did not see the gardens at their best. They were snow filled and there was nothing of a garden to speak about - the summer may bring a different picture.

    Fondest memory: Around this area, there was a great number of memorials to commemorate people and events.

    Favorite thing: The post office is an important facility, no matter which town, city or country you are visiting. In Nuuk, the post office is busy and has it's own unique opening times.

    Monday to Wednesday and Friday 10.00 - 15.00

    Thursday 10.00 - 17.00

    Saturday 10.00 - 13.00

    Outside of these hours there is a self service area and equipment.

    The National Library of Greenland

    National Library (1)
    1 more image

    Favorite thing: I was looking for information on a number of things located in Nuuk. I decided to visit the National Library in central Nuuk. The reason was two fold - it was a Sunday and the tourist offices were shut and it was close to the hotel where I was a guest.

    There are bookable and walk-up internet facilities which are free of charge. The staff are friendly and very helpful; and the building itself was welcoming.

    Nunatta Atuagaateqarfia, The Greenland Library, Imaneq 26, PO Box 1011, 3900 Nuuk

    Favorite thing: Nuuk is a moderne city with industry, fishing, service and administration. You can go around in the city by bus or by taxi and of course you can walk. The old houses are very beautiful, but the newer blocks of flats are less nice.
